Description of problem:
I run Fedora Core 3 on Gateway Laptop with Intel 82801DB/DBL/DBM sound
chipset. All modules were loaded as listed:

lsmod command gives (shortly for soundcard-related)

Module            Size    Used by
snd_intel8x0m     18185   0

          snd_mpu401_uart, snd_rawmidi, snd_seq_device

soundcore         9889    1 snd

but system-config-soundcard doesn't produce any sound, and it gives
error message that auto-detection of sound card does not work.

However, on the command terminal, it says this:
van@localhost ~>system-config-soundcard
Simple mixer control 'PCM',0
   Capabilities: pvolume pswitch pswitch-joined

My modules.conf file is:
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/amix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
>/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
>/dev/null 2>&1 ||:

#Note: for user under 2.6, changes must also be made to modprobe.conf!
alias eth1 driverloader

I tried CD music too, but there's no sound at all. It seems that all
the modules were already there in their places and everything should
work correctly. I did try to unmute with "aumix", but still no sound

I did search through the bugzilla but found no similar bug (if it's
actually a bug at all).

I wonder if it has anything to do with the wrong rate, and I don't
know how to change the rate.

Any help is really appreciate!


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have Fedora Core 3 installed (done once)
2. Run system-config-soundcard (everytime)
3. Got no sound, but error message saying that "Automatic detection of
the soundcard did not work. Audio will not be available on the
system..." and the output as shown above.

Comment 1 van 2005-02-25 22:27:39 UTC
Audio Control in Solaris 10 (running same Gateway laptop - Multiboot)
showed that the sample rate is 48.0kHz too. Does it mean that my
built-in Intel chip only runs with 48.0kHz? How do we change it to
