Laptop speakers aren't working on FC4
I recently installed Fedora Core 4 on my Dell Inspiron 2200 lappy, and since then the speakers aren't working. I used FC3 before, and the speakers used to work fine.
The sound card is working fine, I now listen to music by plugging in a headphone!
Is this a issue with the kernel? I installed the latest kernel, but it's still the same! Any ideas, anyone? Should I switch back to FC3 then?

the problem with fedora is that it's a testing distro, as you know, so not everything is guarunteed to work. you can try the distro that techiemoe uses which is similar to fedora (CentOS if i recall correctly) but is more stable. either that or go back to FC3 since it's been proven to workHere's why Linux is easier than Windows:
Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

I don't know if this will be true for you laptop. But it had worked on a lot of laptops with AC97 sound cards.

Are all the volumes up and not just the headphone volume?
