Intel sound card on Fedora 7


Hi everyone!

I have already read a lot about it on the internet, but I still can't solve my problem...

I have a Lenovo N100 laptop, and yesterday I installed Fedora 7 on it.

My problem is to configure ALSA to work on my laptop... Maybe anyone knows what I can do?

Maybe anyone already had the same problem with my sound card? The sound card is Intel High Definition (Chip: Realtek ALC 861-VD).

I would be very thankful if anyone could try to help me...



Thanks!

I've just been looking into your problem and some in the Fedora forum suggest that you need to enable the onboard modem in order for the sound to work. Apparently the modem and sound card share the same chip.

How can I enable the onboard modem? Isn't it enabled by default?

I don't know as this is something hardware specific. You would have to access your bios settings and check to see whether the modem is enabled or disabled.

I have checked it now, and the modem is enabled.

Do you have any ideas?

Run this as root:

lsmod | grep snd

That should show whether any module is loaded for that soundcard.

To get your card going, you can also try this simple command:

alsaconf

Can you check whether you are using ALSA or OSS? I just had a similar myself with two soundcards fighting for priority - the system (Debian in this case) got so confused it loaded OSS instead of ALSA. Right-click the speaker icon on your taskbar, select open Volume Control and check which device it shows.

You could also look through var/log/dmesg for any error messages:

dmesg

It looks like ALSA is being blocked by Selinux . I'm afraid I can't tell why but I get the impression that Selinux is getting more paranoid with every new release.
The short term solution is probably to experiment with the settings of Selinux. Set it to Permissive or disable it altogether - but that would mean losing a certain measure of protection. If you want a more structural solution, you need to write new permission rules; consult one of the online Selinux manuals for this.
By the way, I am also getting the impression that something is seriously wrong the current ALSA package - you are not the only one to have issues with onboard intel cards and I am seeing more and more of these lately. This may get solved by an update but I doubt whether that will make the Selinux problem go away.
