I am using FC3 and kernel 2.6.12-1.1376 and an Intel i82801 sound chip
and I can't get sound working.  Everything looks like it is working,
but no sound.

xmms gives notice:
	Please check that your soundcard is configured properly
	You have the correct output plugin.
	No other program is blocking the sound card.
and then shows the xmms window with a very active audio band display.

How does one configure a sound card?

play <song.wav> gives
	sox: can't open output file '/dev/dsp': device or resource busy

This can't hardly be true.  This was the first thing I did after boot.

I've looked at alsamixer, aumixer and amixer to be sure none is muted.

Since sound played before I updated from the 2.6.9 kernel, and it
still works with knoppix, I'm sure the hardware is OK.

kudzu and /etc/sysconfig/hwconf indicate that the hardware has been
recognized and a driver  (snd-intel8x0) assigned.

We no longer have sndconfig, although I don't know that it would help

Any suggestions would be appreciated,

I had problems with my Intel sound card too. I had snd-intel8x0 and snd-intel8x0m loaded. After I blacklisted sndintel8x0m and restarted, my sound card worked.

Hope this helps,

I find these files in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1376_FC3/kernel/sound/pci/ Not sure what "blacklist" means -- probably remove it. Should I just rename or erase the file in the directory above?

"blacklist" means you tell Fedora to not load the module, no matter what. Add the following line into /etc/hotplug/blacklist and restart:


That's it! If your problem is the same as mine, after you reboot, sound should be suddenly working!

Hope this helps you,
