Thread: No sound card is being detected.

  1. #1

    No sound card is being detected.

    Hello, I installed FC3 a month or so back and have no sound on it the whole time. The current system is a Presario 1621, 233mhz, AMD 64, with an ESS1869 sound card. The computer previously had Win 98 and XP and the sound worked. I try to detect the sound card, and "no sound card is detected" I have looked at the BIOS settings, and they are DMA 0, DMA 1, IRQ 7.... I had 2 modprobe files and one was .conf and the other was .conf.dist. The .conf had only one line of code in it, whereas the .dist file had what appeared to be the default files. I am not sure what to do in order to get this to work. Any ideas? Thanks, TOM

    Re:No sound card is being detected.

    I do not see the sections listed under this person's modprobe.conf file, Alsa section, etc... As I mentioned above. I had two different modprobe files. Here is the contents of my .conf, does this look normal?

    Re:No sound card is being detected.

    Can you post the output of the
    There are some line about your soundcard there, but I don't own one of those, so I can't tell if that is correct.
    The lsmod command will tell if the correct module is loaded.

    Re:No sound card is being detected.

    try this:
    modprobe snd-es18xx
    modprobe snd-pcm-oss
    modprobe snd-mixer-oss
    modprobe snd-seq-oss
    at that point you should have some sound - try playing an mp3 or wav file.

    then try adding this to your modprobe.conf
    alias snd-card-0 snd-snd-es18xx
    remove snd-snd-es18xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-es18xx
    also i would remvoe this stuff from
    alias char-major-116-* snd
    alias sound-service-*-0 snd-mixer-oss
    alias sound-service-*-1 snd-seq-oss
    alias sound-service-*-3 snd-pcm-oss
    alias sound-service-*-8 snd-seq-oss
    alias sound-service-*-12 snd-pcm-oss
