Can you attach output of 'aplay -l' and content of modprobe.conf?

Comment 4 Micheal Clark 2005-06-14 20:21:01 EDT
I can confirm the same behavior on Fedora Core 4 final
Comment 5 Martin Juergens 2005-06-15 09:09:34 EDT
I can't confirm it. You just have to run kmix/alsamixer and adjust your volume
settings. The you have to go to "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack" in alsamixer
and make it still. Don't mute it, just make it still.

Martin
Comment 6 Minkwe 2005-06-15 12:34:04 EDT
(In reply to comment #5)
Martin,
Did you do a clean-install? was your "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack" enabled
by default?

I can confirm sound works after checking the "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack"
in the Volume Control under GNOME. The switch was not visible but I could make
it visible by selecting it from Edit-->Preferences.

Still, this is information that could have made it into the "KNOWN Issues" of
the Release Notes because it is certainly different behaviour from FC3. Can it
still be considered a bug, since the sound should "just work" but it doesn't?

Thanks Martin, setting that option worked beautifully.  I have to agre
withMinkwe, however, having somthing posted on this somewhere, even if it is
just on FedoraFaq.org would be very very helpful.

Hi Micheal,

How did you actually fix your problem?

I am having the same problem as yours.

My sound card works fine on FC3, but after I installed FC4,
the sound card does not work, when I use system-config-soundcard
I get following messages:

amixer: Unable to find simple control 'PCM-2',0
amixer: Unable to find simple control 'DRC Range',0

Please help.

Thanks.
-Daniel

I am had the same problem. Now, my soundcard is OK!
Solution: I adjusted the "External Amplifier" in tabled "Switch" in KMIX to
"Enabled" (Yellow led).
