    FC2: Sound Card (SiS SI7012) Detect But Donot Play Sound

    I have Installed FC2. After the installation (or at the end of installation, whatever you prefer). when the sound card was detected before running the system for the first time. I hear to the sound by clicking the Sound Test Button.
    But as i entered to the GNOME the Sound Card is being Detected (Shows when you use the program "SoundCard Detection" from "System Setting") but donot play any sound not even test sound.
    Details are as under

    Sound Driver: 3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.6a emulation code)
    Kernel: Linux 2.6.5-1.358 #1
    Config options: 0

    Installed drivers:
    Type 10; ALSA emulation

    Card config:
    SiS SI7012 at 0xe000. irq10

    Audio devices:
    0: SiS SI7012 (DUPLEX)

    Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

    Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

    7: system timer

    0: C-Media Electronics CMI9739

    USING THE /sbin/lspci gives the following results
    00:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] Sound Controller (rev a0)

    and USING THE cat /etc/modprobe.conf
    alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
    install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
    remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
    alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
    alias usb-controller1 ohci-hcd

    One Strange thing that i encounter was that i was not able to find the modules.conf file in the etc directory (know because it was mentioned in the ALSA install doc which is in the alsa driver package). is it important

    I have check the volume levels using alsamixer

    Please help me if you know how to fix this problem

    I think I can help (yet, i'm still a Linux beginner trying to battle my own problems)

    Do you have a on board audio device built into your motherboard? If so, try turning it off through BIOS.

    I couldn't get my SB Live to work in FC2, but i changed to Mandrake, and had the same problem. When I turned off my on board sound card, everything worked.

    I hope it helps!
