T420 sound issue on rhel 6

Hi all,

I have some problems with the sount in some applications. For example music/youtube sound is fine, but when I use skype or some other similar services mic is working fine but I have no sound.

I use rhel 6.3, gnome with a Lenovo T420.

Did some of you had similar sound issues on rhel?

This is a very common issue when putting a server operating system on a laptop.
RHEL was never designed with laptops in mind.
Now most of the time it will mostly work ,mostly well on a laptop.

The normal issues are sound, mic , mouse touch pad , buttons on the mouse pad, graphics issues, and so on

you do have the required license so

Search the red hat knowledge base after you login to the redhat site with your RHN credentials

and the hardware list

Thanks for the reply. I will try to fix it. I have a laptop with a corporate licence and I know that probably I will not receive any credentials to log in, or it will take a long long time to do so.

Thank you anyway for the reply. if I find the issue I will post it here to let others now.
