Well, it was the volume level in the sound detection, and I answered no when I
could not here any. (So 16.3 probably did fix it. Or modprobe.conf is messed up
by another package that was doing a blacklist thing?)
This has always been set at to low of a level to hear.
Also, P/A is too low, needs to be at 87%, not 74%.
I have noticed that many newbies get hung up on this (for the last 4 releases.
The message is not worded correctly.
First say, if no sound turn up the slider and try again.
if your h/w has a sound device, say yes if you intend to use it, or no if you do
not want to use it.
system-config-soundcard was on live-200080404 but was not installed.
Well, I don't see any alsa changes in the update... system-config-soundcard has
been removed from the distro, sound is managed by pulse audio now.
The sound is wooking now becaise of (I'm guessing)
1. the P/A sound level was set higher or is not reset.
2. system-config-soundcard - not needed as sound is turned on by default.
3. updates to new auth system.
As og 2008-04-17 it is working good.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Closing this then.
