Description of problem:
When Audigy Analog/Digital Output jack is on, I get a horrible buzz
out of all front speakers. When Audigy Analog/Digital Output jack is
off, I never get any sound at all, no matter what. Peter of ALSA has
confirmed this to be a bug that has not been reported before. Peter
says that I should report this here and that I have have confirmed
this to be an FC3 specific problem. Please see:
This web page describes the system and the attempts at problem
resolution quite completely. I don't see any things I could add on to
this at all, if this ALSA web page is read.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3 Tried both 1.0.7 and 1.0.8rc1 ALSA
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC3 on the Asus A7n8X-E Deluxe with on-board Sound disabled
and with Creative Audigy 2 card enabled.
2.Install ALSA as described at
3.Set up volumes using ALSAMixer
4.Set up switches as described at alsa bug report 749.
Actual Results: No sound can be achieved ever.
Expected Results: Sound should work for FC3 under ALSA.
I have continued to research this bug. Seems like many ppl have this
issue with FC3. Numerous soundcards, numerous Mother Boards. Alsa
quite properly lays this bug on Fedora's doorstep.
Hope you get a chance as soon as possible to fix this. Have been
forced to use the commercial (meaning money) OSS driver.
Have you installed new udev?
