Hi Robert.

Thanks for the link above, showing the Centos setup.

Was Fedora 10 a fresh install, or did you upgrade from an earlier version of 
Fedora.

I notice that alsa-driver is version 1.0.17, but you have alsa lib 1.0.18rc3, 
and alsa-utils 1.0.18. I don't yet have F10 installed to compare, but did you 
upgrade the alsa libs, and alsa utils?

You could disable pulseaudio, with a yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio. I 
don't think it will change anything regarding the card being detected, but 
it's worth a reboot after removing that package just to see.

Also open a terminal, su to root and run, tail -f /var/log/messages, then open 
another terminal, and su to root, and run the following commands.
modprobe -r snd-hda-intel
modprobe snd-hda-intel

See for any messages, and if modprobe snd-hda-intel complains.

I can't think of anything else at the mo.

Nigel.
