Sound problem (makes no sense)
Ok - I just freshly installed FC2 for the fun of being off today.

After the install is complete & you set up the user account to log into, it asked me if I want to do a sound test. I clicked yes and heard the little guitar twine on my speakers no problem.

Now I finish and load in to KDE and then go to soundcard detection. It looked identical to what I just did 2 minutes ago and I hear nothing? Why is this? Is my sound muted?

I go into sound & video and there are way too many things I have no idea where to check...

I checked KMIX and turned everything up = nothing

Can someone please tell me what to do because I know my sound card works and FC2 kernel seems to support it since I heard sound no more than 2 minutes ago when I created the user account - the only difference was that I was not logged into KDE.

try turning up aumix, if it's there and alsamixer, if it's there.
check the permissions of /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer
so your users have access to them.

I have neither of those apps under sounds & video...

This makes no sence and is very annoying...I know people have sound with Fedora Core 2 - I just don't understand why this is so complicated for a large distro like Fedora Core 2...???

Can anyone else offer a solution?

Potential Solution to Fedora + KDE + No Sound Problem

I think this is a bug known to the fedora mob, try the following link which describes the problem in more detail.

I was having the same problem with my Sound Blaster Audigy. I removed KDEMultimdedia and the problem is gone!!!

Now mythtv ROCKS!!!

Dunno if your problem is the same: I didn't have sound under KDE but did under Gnome (FC2). It turnedout I had the KDE system volume turned off (accessible throught the little blue speaker next to the clock)

"the only way I've found how to get sound working again is to
remove kdemultimedia."

According to the Link above, they say the only way to fix this bug is to remove kdemultimedia...

How can I remove this? I am not to good with Linux and don't know how to remove this from my distro.
