Talking Beginner's Questions Re Fedora, Core 2


First, I want to say that I appreciate this forum. I haven't posted much, but I am enjoying learning by reading here.

I am almost fully migrated from Windows now, but there are 3 or 4 things I would like to figure out how to do, if possible. I am really new to Linux, so please bear with me...

If any of my questions are not in the right place here, please let me know. I have looked on the forum for specific answers to these questions; but either have missed them, or they are not here yet.

The first question I am wondering is:

How do I get sound to play when I am on a web page with sound in the background? I don't know how to do this in Linux. I have set up the sound server(I think that's what it's called), and when I test the sound card, I hear the little guitar cord play to confirm it is working. My guess is that I need some kind of plugin for Mozilla to get sound to work on web pages? If this is the case, I would really appreciate knowing what plugin, where to get it, and how to install/setup.

Thanks, in advance for your help.

Well, I'm not sure what exactly handles the sound on web pages, but the only 2 plugins I have installed are Java & Flash, and my sound works fine.

I am having the same issue with fedora core 2, but it is not only with Firefox. I am not able to get any two programs to play audio at the same time. I have to stop one to release the audio driver and then play the other.

I know this doesn't help much, but at least you know your not in this boat alone. When I find an answer I will be sure to post.

Thanks Everyone

I appreciate the efforts so far. I am sure that we will figure this out eventually. As far as I know, Java and Flash would not affect weather or not sound would play on web pages which have sound embedded in their back grounds, so there may be something I already have installed, but just have not set up right??
