I am new to the forum to Linux and to Fedora. Irecently installed Fedora Core 7 and I like it a lot. I then installed to a second computer, but I am having problems with the sound card. My hardware is the following:
Dell Optiplex GX1; Crystal Semiconductor CS4236 audio board; 384Mb ram; PIII 650MHz
The problem is that the sound card seems not to work. I did the following suggested steps that I read from different forums:
logged in as root --> then selected --> system --> administration --> soundcard detection --> root password.
Selected system tab --> reload audio drivers --> rewrite configuration files.
Selected sound test and it played perfectly. Then I selected system --> personal --> volume control.
Unmuted everithing even microphone and line in. Volume control selected - CS2436B
( Alsa Mixer)
I have found 2 problems here that I dont know how to resolve:
1. I have no sound yet, I checked the speaker icon in the upper right corner and appears as muted and I did not found any way to unmute it.
2. When I reboot I have to reload the audio drivers in order to listen the test sound again.
I have not found any answer to this and it is as far I have gone using the info provided in the forums.
Does any body knows how to solve this problem?
I will really appreciate any help on this matter.
Thank you all.
