Question Problem with sound card in FC5


I am a newbie to linux and finding difficulty in enabling sound on my system. I have installed FC5 on my system so far good.
But I am unable to get sound on it. I tried the auto detection of sound card but was unable to get through it. It showed me that 'auto sound detection failed'.

It will be of great help if some body can figure out what's the problem
and how I can get through it.

More information please ....

You *really* should post the make and model of your mainboard and/or soundcard. The output of a "lspci -v" might help as well.
If you have a brand new mainboard with onboard sound, rather use the most recent Fedora Core (8).

Hi nelufarup,

FC5 is very old, why cann't you try FC8? Many new features related to sound are evolved since FC5. And also support for FC5 was already over. FC8 is having many new features and is rocking the desktop world recently.
But if you are using FC5 for a particular reason then as woodpecker mention please reply with more details.

First of all thank you woodypecker for your reply.
I will definitely send you the output of "lspci -v".

I was trying to upgrade to Fedora 8 but I am unable to download it.
When I go to the download page I find two options
1. Fedora Desktop Live Media
2. Fedora KDE Live Media

I don't know which one to download. Basically I am confused.
So I want to trouble shoot the problem in FC5 only.

Well, you may be perfectly right in saying that I should upgrade to FC8,
but then help by suggesting how to get it.

Okay. Thanks for info.
So you mean to say that I can select either KDE or GNOME as per my
choice.
Another thing to ask, whether live CD means iso images?

appears to be such a beast. You should either install kernel-devel package and the latest alsa (1.0.16) drivers as a tar.gz, or better upgrade your FC5 including the kernel.
Oh well, I have such a ALC88x thing here as well, and it works fine with Mandriva and 2.6.24 kernel - but I can only get mono ....

Hello woodypecker,

Well ...., I will follow your first suggestion of installing kernel-devel package and the latest alsa drivers.
The reason to stick to FC5 is that I need g77 compiler and from my experience I know that in the latest version of fedora instead of g77 there is f77 compiler. Actually I have written some codes which work well with g77 compiler and not with f77. So inorder to save my efforts of making changes in code, I need to use FC5.

It will be of great help if you can tell me which kernel-devel package I would need and from where I can get it.

Thanks for the help.
