    Audio card issues/ no audio on Fedora 12 =(


    Been using Fedora 12 for 6-8 months now and finding it to my liking. I however, cannot get audio to work. I have a custom gaming pc built with a 5.1 audio card. Its a SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio card and as far as I can tell music can play including cd's, stream..etc... just not getting through my card and out to my speakers. I've had some difficulty with teh specific audio driver (install) so its possibly that or a user setting somewhere. I am currently up to date on updates. Any help is appreciated.

    sorry for the stupid-sounding suggestions, but they've happened to everybody...

    1. are the speakers turned on?

    2. is the speaker cable going to the right input on the sound card?

    3. is the sound card enabled in the BIOS?

    4. look for your card:
    Code:
    lspci|grep -i mult
    5. check if ALSA modules are loaded:
    Code:
    lsmod|grep snd
    6. unmute the card:
    Code:
    alsaunmute
    7. check levels using ncurses-based volume app:
    Code:
    alsamixer
    Those last two commands come from the alsa-utils package.

    Also, I get rid of the pulse audio stuff - that always seems to get in the way.
