Fedora 9 system with the latest updates, since Sep 2, has problems handling XFX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard's Azalia High Definition Audio Codec (Realtek ALC888 CODEC?) properly. Running 'dmesg' reveals the following:

Steps to Reproduce:
During boot process
Are you saying that this suddenly broke on Sep 2? Because there have been no Fedora updates recently.
Either way, I don't think this chip uses firmware from alsa-firmware so reassigning to kernel.

I meant to write that I just installed Fedora 9 and applied the latest updates on Sep 2. But you're right, this is a kernel related issue. I am trying to get more information about this sound card from the Nvidia web site (and googling) without much success. I will boot Windows XP to see what more I can find out from its control panel.
The only information I can get about this audio card from the Windows XP control panel is "Realtek High Definition Audio". Do let me know what else I can do to obtain more useful data to possibly fix this problem.
Did it work before the updates?
This is a brand new system that I gathered and built from scratch in late August. Everything works well under Windows XP. Everything works well under Fedora 9, except for sound. For your information, the Nvidia graphics driver, I 'yum install' from livna.org, seems to work very well.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
