Alsa sound in FC4
1) "aplay" works OK with test (.wav) files, but only if I use "-D hw:1,0". Using "-D pcm.cards.default" indicates the file is "playing", but no sound.
2) Used to get "event" sounds OK (opening, closing windows etc), but this has vanished. Don't believe anything was accidentally changed.
3) No sound when using the screen menus, even though my 2 cards are detected. Card "0" is a Soundblaster in a PCI slot, card "1" is the motherboard chipset (VT82xx).
Have tried for weeks to understand/fix these problems, but no luck.
Any suggestions appreciated.

I had a very similar problem with a very similar set up and I am also fairly new to FC4. But I got mine working, this is what I did:
found this on google
follow those step by step
then do the following as root:
yum -y remove xmms xmms-mp3
yum -y install xmms xmms-mp3
I am actually still in the process of doing this with other players, but at least for now I am doing it while listening to my mp3s.
hope this helps or at least inspires you to find a workaround.
