try typing "alsamixer" at a command prompt. You should see a graphical adjustment window where you can turn up the volume levels. Hope this helps. If not, write back again.

Hi,

In order to help you, more information is needed.

1) What is your kernel version? (uname -a)

2) Could you post the output for lspci?

3) The output for cat /etc/modprobe.conf would be useful too.

Thanks

Oops... lspci command need super user permission.
First switch over into super user mode. try this.
#su -
password: [type your super user password here]
#lspci | grep audio
Then post the result, what u r getting.
The simple solution for your sound card problem is, go to http://www.alsa-project.org/download the latest driver and then install.
Installation steps:
* First unzip the driver file. then go to the directory and then try,
#./configure
#make
#make install
#alsamixer
Hope, now you ill get the sound. If you will get any problem in alsa driver configuration, post it here.

Did you try to run alsamixer?

By the way, for commands like lspci, notice that there is a difference between to be root and to get root permission.

To be root you need to type "su -" and then you can use the lspci.

If you only type "su", you only get root permission and in order to use lspci, you need to type /sbin/lspci.

I am going to guess that something in your install is borked. As support for FC6 will be dropped shortly (one month after the release of Fedora 8), I would suggest upgrading. Is it worth all the effort for something that will not have any support in two months?

Good Luck

Seems, some problems in your OS.
Better u may reinstall or upgrade ur OS.
If you are trying with Laptop or any other latest hardware config pc, then try to install Ubuntu gutsy 7.10 and install d latest ALSA-Driver.
The driver problem is not related with OS.But why I m saying is, the updated version may b solve your problem. Coz Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 released by last week only.
