Description of problem:
- Toshiba Libretto L5 - labtop/notebook
- Crusoe chip
- Sound Ali5451
Sound is loaded as a module, and everything seems to work fine, but I do not hear any sound. Not even after maxing out all volumes.
Workaround: run 'alsamixer' and 'unmute' the 'External Amplifier'. This seems to occurr mostly with labtops.
Proper solution: make sure it is 'unmuted' standard when installing alsamixer/alsa-lib/etc.
There's a similar bug report here:http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16582
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora core 4 (on a notebook)
2. play sound
Actual Results: sound should be heard
Expected Results: nothing is heard
In case you use "gnome-volume-control" instead of alsamixer, the 'External Amplifier' is not shown. You have to explicitly indicate among "Preferences" that you wish to see it.
Thanks for your report.
