I know the alsa-driver is 1.0.17, but he is showing alsa-lib as
1.0.18rc3, and alsa-utils as 1.0.18. This seems a bit strange, as the
alsa driver is an earlier version than those for alsa-lib, and
alsa-utils.

Could someone have a look in Yumex, and see which alsa-lib, and
alsa-utils versions are installed on their machine.

Please say whether this is after or before doing a post install yum
update, and if the rpmfusion repo's are enabled, or not.

Many thanks for replies.

Nigel.
I don't know about default, but I have the following alsa
packages on a fully updated Fedora 10 x86_64 system after
customizing.

alsa-lib.i386                        1.0.18-6.rc3.fc10
    installed
alsa-lib.x86_64                      1.0.18-6.rc3.fc10
    installed

    installed
alsa-plugins-jack.x86_64             1.0.18-1.rc3.fc10

    installed
alsa-plugins-upmix.x86_64            1.0.18-1.rc3.fc10
    installed
alsa-plugins-vdownmix.x86_64         1.0.18-1.rc3.fc10

    installed
callweaver-alsa.x86_64               1.2.0.1-1.2.fc10
    installed
python-alsaaudio.x86_64              0.3-1.fc9
    installed

I'm not sure if the alsa-lib.i386 is necessary or caused by
some fumbling around I've done.

Thanks Stan.

That sort of looks like there should be no problem in having an earlier version of the alsa driver than the versions of alsa-lib, and alsa-utils.

I'm trying to help someone with sound problems with Fedora 10. All sound modules are loaded, but no soundcard detected.

This is on an OQO pocket pc machine. He has another 3 of these machines, which are using Centos 5.2, and sound is working on these, but no sounds from the one with Fedora 10 installed.

 www.oqo.com

Centos 5.2 is using alsa driver version 1.0.14rc3, and sounds are fine, yet Fedora 10 using alsa driver 1.0.17, has all snd modules loaded, but no soundcard detected.

The thread starts yesterday, with the subject line.
F10-No sound on my OQO

Any suggestions to resolving Robert's problem

Links to the output after running the alsa-info.sh script below.

The link below is the output from running alsa-info.sh on F10

And the link below is the output for running alsa-info.sh on his Centos installs.

Nigel.

The centos alsa identified the hda intel as a
Codec: SigmaTel STAC9200
He needs to pass the parameter model=STAC9200 to alsa to give it a hint. Obviously, the version of alsa on Fedora 10 isn't able to figure it out by itself. Pass it either in modprobe.conf or as a parameter to a modprobe command. You can find these models in the alsa-driver source package in
alsa-kernel/Documentation/ALSA-Configuration.txt

You know, I'll kick myself if I ever buy a sound device with an hda-intel chipset. 90% of the problems with sound on linux must be due to that chipset. I wonder why Intel didn't at least give a standard design template to their customers so they would all have a chance of being standardized. Insane!
