Soudcard detection problem in FC3



Hi,

I apologize if I'm posting it to the wrong place. I posted this message to the users' group, but noone seemd to have a clue about it, so this seems to be the last place to try. I'm sorry for the size, I just tried to put as much information as possible here. Here it goes.

I did a clean intall of FC3 on a Dell Precision 410 Workstation (P-III 450MHz). According to the specs, it has an Intel 440 BX chipset with a 16 bit PnP Crystal 3D CS4237B audio controller (my guess is it's onboard). However, FC3 just dones't recognize the sound card.

During the installation or startup, I don't get any messages, but I just don't get any sound. I've already tried adjusting all the volumes and, when I use the soundcard detection utility ("system-config-soundcard") I get the message "No soundcards detected". It seems as if Linux just doesn't detect my soundcard.

The following lines were extracted from /var/log/messages :
Nov 16 08:26:51 patroclus kernel: isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
Nov 16 08:26:51 patroclus kernel: isapnp: Card 'CS4236B'
Nov 16 08:26:51 patroclus kernel: isapnp: 1 Plug & Play card detected total

which makes me belive the sound card was detected ok. But still no sound! This is what the Hardware Browser shows:
Sound Cards:
Selected Device: CS4236B - CSC000 [note that my soundcard should be CS4237B]
Device Information
Manufacturer: Unknown
Driver: snd-cs4236


Unknownd Devices:
  Selected Device: CS4236B - CDC000f
  Device Information:
     Manufacturer: Unknown
     Driver: ns-558

  Selected Device: CS4236B - CSC0010
  Device Information:
     Manufacturer: Unknown
     Driver: Unknown


Did anyone experience similar problems before? Is there a solution for it already?


Thanks,
