No sound: Soundcard ALi M5451 on notebook Fujitsu FMV-7000 NA 5 (running f7)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:11 EST
Description of problem:
Installed Fedora 7 on used Fujitsu FMV-7000 NA 5.
Executing menu "System -> Administration ->
Soundcard Detection" shows:
M5451 PCI AC-Link Controller Audio Device
But test sound is not audible. I assured using
"System --> Preferences --> Personal --> Volume"
that volume was turned on. Also, I installed all
recommended updates for Fedora7. Still no success.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always -- have rebooted many times
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora7 using ALi M5451 soundcard (potentially
on my machine?)
yum shows me that I have the following two (but not more) alsa-
alsa-utils.i386 1.0.14-0.7.rc2.fc7 installed
alsa-lib.i386 1.0.14-0.4.rc3.fc7 installed
When I run 'alsamixer' from the command line, it works but it
shows no reaction when I play the test sounds from the menus.
[Bugzilla Bug 145210 did not seem exactly related to my
problem -- my soundcard is detected, after all]
can you please attach /root/scsconfig.log and /root/scsrun.log? They can be
generated by system-config-soundcard.

After installing today's available updates, all of a sudden the
sound started working... no idea why! So for me, right now there
is no immediate need anymore to get farther into this. But
please tell me if you need any more information concerning this
what do you have in /proc/asound/version?
/proc/asound/version is empty
huh, that's quite strange. okay, closing as WORKSFORME.
