Could you please attach output of "dmesg" and "lspci -vn"?

Please check if your card is supported by ALSA:

I checked the alsa website.  Didn't find my card listed there.	Note their pull
down list misspells Philips with two L's.  The card, as mentioned is a Philips
"acoustic edge" PSC706.
Comment 5 Richard Robinson 2006-05-29 01:20:55 EDT
perhaps it should also be mentioned that what motivated this is the fact that
the FC 5 install reported that it "detected" the sound card and attempted to
"configure" it.  Then failed as reported.
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2006-05-30 03:41:18 EDT
I'm afraid your card isn't supported under linux...
Comment 7 Richard Robinson 2006-05-31 01:55:57 EDT
okay.  in that case, would you agree the Fedora install should not report the
card is "found" and then attempt in vain to "configure" it?
Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2006-06-01 05:41:56 EDT
The card is found (by pci scan) but there isn't any proper driver for it so
s-c-s can't configure it. But I understand what you mean....
Comment 9 Martin Stransky 2006-08-08 07:44:26 EDT
Please send your request to ALSA project (www.alsa-project.org), they're authors
of Linux Sound System.
