Description Pedro Madeira 2005-11-02 07:26:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051015 Firefox/1.6a1

Description of problem:
I own a satellite pro A60 from Toshiba and installed Fedora Core 4.
Sound didnt work, although the sound card was detecteded and the proper sound module was loaded it couldnt play the sample sound after running system-config-soundcard.

Then upgraded to Fedora Development (future FC5) and the same thing happens.
Even after upgrades the behaviour is the same.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-soundcard-1.2.14-1, alsa-lib-1.0.10rc1-2, kernel-2.6.14-1.1635_FC5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run system-config-soundcard
2.soundcard is properly detected
3.select play sound option

Actual Results:  no sound is playable

Could you try to change the "External Amplifier" to "ON" (or unmute it, you can
use the alsamixer command-line utility) and check any sound application?

Hello Stransky,

Your suggestion worked perfectly. With external Amplifier set to on I could hear
audio using system-config-soundcard and also on third party audio applications.

However this seems strange since I work with several toshiba laptops with all
kinds of different motherboards and audio cards and this was the only one
requiring Ext Amp set to on.

However the problem was solved and this case may now be considered closed.
My best regards from Portugal,
Pedro Madeira
