Description of problem:
If system-config-soundcard cant play test sound then it says "auto detection of soundcard failed....." It is not true. In many case the "Extenal Amplifier" is muted by default and sound in not heard. It should say something like "... either soundcard driver is not properly installed or mixer settings are wrong. Try muting / unmuting mixer settings ....".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 out of the box on an intel8x0 based multimedia card machine
2. Run system-config-soundcard and play test sound
Actual Results: Sound not heard and error message said "sound will not work"
Expected Results: mesage should say "..... Check if amplifier settings are unmuted .....".
I think message in the current release is fine and I'm going to improve it more....
