Could you check to mute the "External Amplifier" switch? You may use alsamixer
command line utility, the 'M' key.

Comment 4 Kunal Shah 2006-04-27 00:48:03 UTC
On your suggestion i did some googleing and did this

root@localhost ~]# amixer -c 0 sset "External Amplifier" unmute
Simple mixer control 'External Amplifier',0
  Capabilities: pswitch pswitch-joined
  Playback channels: Mono
  Mono: Playback [on]
[root@localhost ~]# alsactl store

After that i tried to play some music. no sound.
Then i tried to mute external amplifier. no sound.

Comment 6 Kunal Shah 2006-07-13 04:11:06 UTC
I am getting error following step 4
Configure and compile this package (do "$./configure" and "$make" in
alsa-driver-xxxx directory)

I am using alsa-driver-1.0.11.tar.bz2

for this "configure" went fine without erros but make gives compilation error.

Isnt this newer version than the one mentioned in your howto?


Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2006-08-08 11:16:03 UTC
I updated my page so there are fixed drivers for FC5 (1.0.12rc2)-

Or you can check the latest kernel for FC5.

Comment 9 Kunal Shah 2006-08-09 01:10:39 UTC
I tried that and still not working with alsa-driver-1.0.12rc2.tar.bz2

For Fedora kernel its latest, i use 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5
