Description of problem:
Sound doesn't work on the new kernel (2.6.10-1.760_FC3).
No sound is heard when running system-config-soundcard, nor when
trying to play music through different players (RealPlayer, CD Player
and so-on).
Sound works fine on kernel 2.6.9-1.667 and on kernel 2.6.9-1.724_FC3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to play sound from any program that makes sounds (music player,
for example).

Actual Results:  No sound was heard.

Expected Results:  Sound should have been heard (the program seemed to

Additional info:

My sound-card is Intel Corp. 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M)
AC'97 Audio Controller (module snd-intel8x0).

Same problem here with a different sound card (module snd-cs46xx).

Here too the problem started with 2.6.10-1.741_FC3 and still there
with newly installed 2.6.10-1.766_FC3. Everything is fine on 2.6.9's.

Here's lspci about my sound card:
02:0a.0 Multimedia audio controller: Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24
[CrystalClear SoundFusion Audio Accelerator] (rev 01)

and from modprobes.conf:
alias snd-card-0 snd-cs46xx
options snd-card-0 index=0
install snd-cs46xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-cs46xx &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-cs46xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-cs46xx

Everything is fine on platforms using:
   - snd-ens1371 (Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97])
   - snd-maestro3 (ESS Technology ES1983S Maestro-3i Audio Accel.)

Is there someone who's trying to solve this? This is pretty critical, and this
bug has been published more than 3 months ago..!

I don't want to be annoying or bothersome, or sound like I'm not thankful that
this even exists, but... someone, please help!

Thank you,

Try taking a look at bug #144742 . It's chock full of comments from i810 owners
who are having sound problems and some suggestions about how to fix it.

Thank you so much!!! Going to Volume Control (or alsamixer) and muting
"Headphone Jack Sense" does solve the problem - on the snd-intel8x0. Thank you!
