Description of problem:
After updating to kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3 onboard sound no longer
functions. When reverting to kernel-2.6.9-1.667 (the one that comes
with FC3) sound behaves normally.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3
Actual Results: Sound no longer works.
Expected Results: Sound should work.
In Gstreamer preferences when I try to test, I receive this error:
Failed to construct test pipeline for 'ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound
The soundcard detection script detects my soundcard, but fails to play
the test sound.
alsamixer reports that everything that should be unmuted, is.
Audio device is:

I found out that issuing a suspend to RAM fixed the sound issue. Even after a reboot, the
sound seems to work perfectly fine.
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'.
I have updated to FC4 and the bug does not occur.
