sound card configuration log
You have two sound devices, which one doesn't work?
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
04:03.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
btw. Creative Labs SB X-Fi isn't supported under linux yet.
Both cards are not working. No sound from either of them.

I still have the same issue. How should I use FC5 packages? Do you mean, I

Really I don't know. Please report it to the ALSA project
(www.alsa-project.org), they're authors of linux sound system.
