Description of problem:

During installation the sound card was correctly recognized (i think),
but when i was asked to test play-sound, it sounded nothing, so sound
configuration filed.

Now a month later (almost) when I thought that let me give it a shot
again, I tried running "sndconfig" but I do not find it. On googling I
found the following in 1.92 test3 release notes...

sndconfig — No longer required by mainstream hardware...

BTW then post-installation, if one does some tweaking, how does one
configure sound for mainstream or non-mainstread sound cards ?

Here's info from /etc/sysconfig/hwconf :
class: AUDIO
bus: PCI
detached: 0
driver: snd-intel8x0
desc: "Intel Corp.|82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller"
vendorId: 8086
deviceId: 24d5
subVendorId: 103c
subDeviceId: 12bc
pciType: 1
pcidom:    0
pcibus:  0
pcidev: 1f
pcifn:  5

If just loading the module doesn't work, that's normally a driver issue.
Comment 2 Banibrata Dutta 2004-09-22 07:20:34 EDT
Relevant output of "/sbin/lspci" is:
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER
(ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)

But, FC3-test1 sets everything correctly. All I had to do was to raise
the volume levels (perculiar thing about ALSA is they preset vol = 0).
Got the hint from the following URL
