If I can help a quick fix it to add the following lines to 

/etc/rc.local

amixer -c 0 set 'Surround Speaker' 115 unmute
amixer -c 0 set 'Front Speaker' 115 unmute
amixer -c 0 set 'Surround Speaker Playback Volum' 115 unmute


... This is what i did on my Macbook Pro 5.4  :)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

The workaround from Luca didn't work for me

...did the trick on my MacBookPro5,5.

> amixer -c 0 set 'Front Speaker' 115 unmute

The "Front Speaker" command unmutes some very strange speaker, it sounds kinda "metallic", with no bass, so I turned it off again. Together with the "Surround Speaker" it sounds a bit better, but overall sound experience is still awful compared to what I have under MacOSX. But at least it's "working" now!

> amixer -c 0 set 'Surround Speaker Playback Volum' 115 unmute

The "Surround Speaker Playback Volum" command did nothing here.


Thanks, Luca!
