Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 129443
No sound from Sound Blaster sound card

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/7.54 (Windows 98; U) [en]
Description of problem:
Although the older technology Sound Blaster Live card seems to be
identified properly, no sound is produced.
Doesn't work at all
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: No sound whatsoever
Expected Results: There should be sound.
Just as a point of reference - thought I would mention it:
If you look at the code that was used in Linux Mandrake (yes I know
it is not Red Hat related) version 9.0 the sound card was properly
identified and sound was properly produced. However, for all
versions of Linux Mandrake after v9.0 the sound card never worked
again. I suspect that the problem lies with the universal code
shared with all flavours of Linux.
Could you please attach the contents of /etc/sysconfig/hwconf as well
as /etc/modprobe.conf to this bug?

I had the same problem with my sound card in FC2. Then I upgraded to FC4-T2 and
now I have a different problem with my sound card. I ran for many months in FC2
before I realized that I had to run "aumix" and increase the volume of "Vol" and
"PCM" levels. The sound card worked fine, but, for some reason the volume was
set to "0" whenever I rebooted. I never figured out why.
By the way, my hwconf also lists my sound card as:
desc: "Creative Labs|SB Live! EMU10k1"
We may have the exact same cards (and the exact same problem).
Can you be more specific where is the problem? Can you hear sound when you
adjust some channels in alsamixer or some volume-control utility, or it doesn't
work at all? And does it work in FC4?
Or do you have a problem only with system-config-soundcard?
Works for me with new s-c-s...
