Failed to recognize sound card / make it work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:49 EST
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
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 Ã¢â¬â 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 :
desc: "Intel Corp.|82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
If just loading the module doesn't work, that's normally a driver issue.
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
