Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131399
sound plays at test after install, but stops playing afterward (C-Media CMI9739/A sound onboard Nvidia Nforce 3 chipset)

Description of problem:
The sound played fine on the initial test but after fedora started no
sound would play. I went to soundcard detection and retested and it
would not play.
My sound card is the C-Media CMI9739/A sound onboard Nvidia Nforce 3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2
occurs after installation
Steps to Reproduce:
3.after start no sound
Audio Device says
Vendor: nVidia Corperation
Model: nForce3 Audio
(I think it might be related to kdemultimedia)
Do you get any output when running "system-config-soundcard" from the
Did you check the mixer settings (checking that the master/pcm/etc.
tracks are unmuted)?
Does sound play outside of KDE?
What is the output of "aplay -l"?
I have nForce2 AC97 Audio onboard and it uses the same kernal module
snd-intel8x0. Here's what you need to do. Go in the menu to
Preferences>Sound and turn on the sound server. That should enable
sound in general and make the test work as well. The one bummer is
that that setting has to be made for each user seperately.
P.S. I haven't tested it to see if this will work to enable sound if
you've installed the Linux nForce drivers of nVidia but it should.
Sorry I forgot. That's Gnome directions. If you can't use those
specific directions to enable the sound server, that's the direction
to investigate how to do it in KDE.

Have you tried aplay?
