Description of problem:
On a fresh install of FC3, my integrated soundcard with the
"82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio" chipset and snd_intel8x0 module no longer
produces any sound--it worked fine under FC2. I have run aumix,
alsamixer, kmix, and all the sound levels are set appropriately. When
running XMMS and playing a sound file, you will see the sound waves,
but no audio is produced. The speakers are on and work fine on
another machine. system-config-soundcard detects the sound card, but
the test sound does not play either. The closest problem I could find
was in this thread:
I tried what this suggested, it didn't work. I then tried doing what
it said but using "snd-intel8x0" module to exclude, but to no avail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC3 on a machine with 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio audio chipset.
2.Attempt to play a sound/music
Actual Results: You will see sound levels are fine, that XMMS
actually working, but no sound is emitted from the computer.
Expected Results: I expected music to play in XMMS just like it does

This sounds a lot like bug 135979 ...
Does doing the following help:
1. Adding snd-intel8x0m to /etc/hotplug/blacklist
2. Edit /etc/asound.conf abd set the period_size to 512
If to does then this is surely a duplicate...
I gave your solution a shot, still doesn't work. Thanks anyhow.
I had a lot of problems with FC3 and 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97.
My solution was to shut down asound, copy my old /etc/asound.state
from the old FC2 system, put it on the new FC3 install, and then start
asound again. Then, everything worked fine. Something seemed to be
nutty with the way the initial state gets set up. Mucking with mixers
and iecset never got me anywhere.
I have the same problem as Philip had! Is it possible to have the
/etc/asound.state to give a try?
More likely a duplicate of Bug #144742? Please test the workaround there.
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.
