Back again with another perplexing problem.
Running FC2 on a LinuxCertified laptop
I had sound for several months, then all of a sudden lost sound in everything. All apps as well as MP3, Ogg, CDs, everything.
I tried several times system-config-soundcard. I get the following:
In google'ing around I found lots of posts of lost sound in FC2, and followed several advices to re-install / edit alsamixer which didn't help.
Vendor: Intel 82801DB (ICH4) AC97 Audio Contoller
Play test sound ? Yes
Did you hear anything? NO
Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. Audio will not be available on the system. Please click OK to continue.
I found lots of cases where install / upgrade of NVidea drivers borked the sound, but I didn't change NVidea drivers or even try.
I'd be most appreciative if someone passed a magic bullet or advice as to what to try or do to get bafck my sound (short of waiting for FC3 final)
Thanks in advance.
