What sound card do you have? If you're not sure, do "lspci" and look
for a line that had "audio" or "sound".
Here it comes:

I tried SuSE 9.1 LiveCD and sound was working perfectly.
Can you try upgrading to the alsa-lib 1.0.4 RPM from here?
I installed Suse 9.1 Professional on the machine and must have
mistakenly told the installer to format /boot, so I can't boot my
FC2t3 partition anymore (no kernel). I will try FC2 + your RPM once
it's out and I manage to download it, sorry for the delay.
And I'm hoping I won't scratch my SuSE install (which somewhat manage
to make about everything work including sound).
Meanwhile, for non expert installers like me, it would be great
to take into account one wish I made in december:
- If installer sees a big disk (say >= 80GB), recommand to reserve
a partition (say ~ 8GB) so that it's easy for a not that technical
user to test FC3 betas when they're out without risking
too much of their system. The idea being that
FC3 betas are able to detect this partition, install
themselves there, add their entry to the existing
grub and don't otherwise touch other partitions. This might
increase the feedback on betas and help form a tester community
with more end users. I don't know if this is a goal,
but this might help for 2.6 kernels and various hardware,
or brand new GNOME/KDE versions, etc...
But well, not directly related to ALSA :) :)
Ok, it would be great if you could let me know what happens, I don't
have access to any hardware that tickles this bug in alsa.
No problem with sound in the FC2 release on this machine, the ogg file
plays as expected, you can close this report :). I did not try the
