    some apps may be set to using OSS or aRts. run "gstreamer-properties" and set that to ALSA. and XMMS has OSS as default so u need to set that to ALSA as well.

    No sound

    I am having almost the same problem, but my sound worked in FC3 but not FC4
    I ran sound card detection and it came up with the same drivers in FC3

    my modprope.conf is as follows
    alias eth0 tg3
    alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
    options snd-card-0 index=0
    options snd-intel8x0 index=0
    remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
    alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
    alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd

    An nForce motherboard is not gonna have a linux sound chip on board... What's the output of dmesg? - Anyway, the driver may contain 'intel' in its name but its a generic AC97 driver probably. Have you configured alsamixer?
    Code:
    $ alsamixer

    I think once you install new drivers it will automatically mute everything again. Go ahead run alsamixer again to see what's in there. aumix is good too.

    I know this isn't my post, but my other post is not getting any replies. When I run aumix.. i get no device found. When I run alsamixer, I get No mixer elems found. Alsaconf works... finds my card and says that it sets the volumes. I have installed kamix and made sure the sound was unmuted and volume was up, but when I launch xmms the volume is all the way down and even after turning it up, I have no sound. What am I missing?

    try .... apt-get alsa-base, alsa-headers, and alsa-utils.

    I had a similar problem as mentioned and this fixed it
