    Sound card does not work in Fedora anymore


    I have recently upgraded to Fedora core 2 from rh 9. My sound card used to be automatically detected and there is no problem with the sound in rh9.

    However,after upgrading, there is no sound at all. I used the Soundcard Detection program in GNOME to test. Fedora managed to detect the sound card. It gives the following stats:
    Vendor: C Media Electronics Inc
    Model: CM 8738
    Module: snd-cmipci

    I clicked the 'Play test sound' button and no sound came out. I clicked on the 'No' button of the 'can hear sound?' dialog box and the message appeared: "Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. Audio will not be available on the system. Please click OK to continue."

    How do I solve this problem? Thanks for the reply.

    Is that driver loaded now? What kernel version is the new FC running? And is it different from the old one?

    big thing with FC2 is that it is now using ALSA straight out of the box.

    have fun


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
