Description of problem:
Audio does not play until I have run the sound card config utility.  
By that I mean that everytime I restart my computer I must rerun the 
utility from inside Fedora in order to get audio to play.

I have tried using using Grip, the CD Player, and the Music Player, 
but none of them would work until I ran the sound card config.  The 
programs all say that they are playing the music, but no sound comes 
out.  I checked the audio levels in the volume control and they are 
all fine.  This problem exists both for playing CDs in the drive and 
for playing music off of my hard drive.

If I play a song or CD, no sound comes out.  If, while the song is 
still playing, I open the sound card config utility, the sound 
immediatly starts.  I have never had any errors while setting up my 

My computer has an Asus A7N8X-dx motherboard with the nForce 2 
chipset.  It uses the built in AC '97 audio.  I have no other sound 
cards installed now, and have never had one installed.  This problem 
did not exist with FC1 or Suse, and I have never had a problem with 
it while running Windows.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart computer
2. Log in
3. Play audio (CD or song on HDD)
4. No sound is produced
5. Run sound card config utility
6. Audio plays

Actual Results:  At first, no sound plays.  After running the 
utility, the sound kicks in.

I believe that you need to raise the volume.  If you go to the Main
Menu -> Sound & Video -> Volume Control, you will be able to raise the

I'm going to mark this report as a duplicate of another bug regarding
the default sound setting being zero.
