Description of problem:
During install system-config-soundcard plays sound,on loging into the
desktop and play system-config-soundcard theres no sound only this error
'amixer: Unknown playback setup 'on'..
From then on I can not get sound.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC 2 in first boot test system-config-soundcard
2.Intial login to desktop test system-config-soundcard
Actual Results: No sound
Expected Results: Sound from system-config-soundcard
Tried most things to fix:- different rpm's,vanilla kernel less alsa
modules install alsa tarball. nothing works.
I had yum load in Axel Thims 'kernel-module-alsa-2.6.6-1.435.i686'and
nvidia-graphics/-devel,it gave me sound in xmms,mplayer but not in KDE
although in control center ->sound and multimedia->sound system the
test worked but not in system notifications.Alsa is started during
boot up but does not restore settings without an entry in /etc/rc.local
I changed mobo's Asus A7V8X > Gigabyte GA 7VT600 Alsa now works apart
from KDE,Test works in control center>sound multimedia>sound system and
not in system notifications.Well hopefully Alsa has been fixed by FC 3.
David, those external kernel-module-alsa drivers are not supported by
Red Hat, and any problems with them should be directed at that person
As you're only having troubles with KDE now, I'll reassign the bug to
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC2 is not even
supported by Fedora Legacy currently.
