I also have installed alsa1.0.9rc3 (driver,utils and firmware) and have tried various cards snd-azx, snd-azalia,snd-hda-intel, snd-intel8x0.

Please help me on this as i have been going at it now for the past 3days..The sound works on windows with a realtek driver. I downloaded the linux version of the supposed driver but still with no success though i must point out that it uses alsa1.0.4. It is a Sony Vaio FS115E.

Thank you,

Sony Vaio Sound


I installed Fedora Core 3 and have the latest kernel installed.

After completing updates and making sure all was installed sound did NOT work.

This is what I done:

I downloaded the latest alsa driver alsa-driver-1.0.9.

I then unzipped the tar and did the following:

1) cd alsa-1.0.9
2) ./configure
3) make
4) make install

Now the new alsa module should be installed. Reboot your machine.

After the reboot open a terminal and run a program called alsamixer.

Make sure the all the areas except microphone are not muted and you have the volume pumped up to the top of the green.

You can test an audio cd and you should have sound now.

Thanks CWireless49 for the assistance. I tried the sound with the alsa drivers 1.0.9 and it works perfect.
Thanks once again.
