Thinkpad a21m no sound FC5

Hi All,

Wonder if anyone cold assist with this;

I've got an a21m running FC5 but can get no audio from it. I've had a look around and tried a few things - made sure the external amplifier box is checked in the audio preferences, also tried getting it going with the alsamixergui, but to no avail. The system seems the audio device as a 'Sound Fusion CS46xx (alsa)'

Here's the output from lsmod for snd:

[root@linux-mobile ~]# lsmod | grep snd
snd_cs46xx 80072 2
gameport 15177 2 snd_cs46xx
snd_rawmidi 24001 1 snd_cs46xx
snd_ac97_codec 83937 1 snd_cs46xx
snd_ac97_bus 2497 1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_seq_dummy 3781 0
snd_seq_oss 28993 0
snd_seq_midi_event 7105 1 snd_seq_oss
snd_seq 47153 5 snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi_event
snd_seq_device 8909 4 snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq
snd_pcm_oss 45009 0
snd_mixer_oss 16449 2 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 76869 3 snd_cs46xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 22597 2 snd_seq,snd_pcm
snd 50500 12 snd_cs46xx,snd_rawmidi,snd_ac97_codec,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq,snd_seq_device,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,s nd_pcm,snd_timer
soundcore 9377 2 snd
snd_page_alloc 10441 2 snd_cs46xx,snd_pcm

I'm not familiar with using alsa so was hoping I could get some pointers here as to how and what to use within that to get it working (if indeed that's what I should be using!) Here's the current alsa rpm's I have installed:

[root@linux-mobile ~]# rpm -qa | grep alsa

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and any pointers/info etc much appreciated.
