Description of problem: During anaconda installation, sound card is detected but
no sound issues forth.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: Similar bugs reported earlier: 213833, 214001 and 214115. But I
could find no solution in any of those bug reports.
Created attachment 140505 [details]
system config soundcard log
Similar if not the same problem
During install, sound card is detected and sound is heard (left, right and both)
but no sound when playing CDs
Could you please check the latest drivers / packages? (ALSA 1.0.14rc1)
How-to is here:
Have previously downloaded ALSA HG and found that this fixed the problem. I
would be reluctant to try and install ALSA 1.0.14rc1 as past experience has
taught me that these things seldom go as planned; usually the installation
program can't find version.h.
guess we'll have to wait for FC7
I've tried everything...checking volume everywhere, logging in as other user
uneventful install of
localhost (root) ~ >pwd
localhost (root) ~ >cd ALSA
localhost (root) ~/ALSA >lsa

just discovered that if I open the audio CD with Konqueror and click on a music
selection, noatun plays the music successfully...sound emanates from the speakers.
KSCD still starts the play bar moving but no sound emanates from the speakers.
Not sure if change related to yum update of 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6
NO! I am not logged in as root
yes volume controls are are on at max
yes, 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 has the new drivers.
KsCD was the problem and it has disappeared since I do regular "yum update"
Rhythmbox Music Player and Sound Juicer CD extractor work OK.
I've used KsCD for years but no more!
I have 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 and do regular "yum update"
