I recently got my wife to switch to Fedora as she was getting very

Everything works well except there is no audio. Direct from boot there is no
/proc/asound or /dev/snd directories. lspci does not show any audio devices
so I'm not sure what driver to use. Neither the alsa wiki or google were
much help.

I tried modprobe snd-intel8x0 since it's really common and the module loaded
and created some entries under /proc/asound but alsamixer still didn't see a
sound card.

She likes F9 overall but has to have working sound. Any ideas?



This system looks a lot like my R4000.  It's got the same video chipset (Radeon XPress 200M) so my bet is it has the ATIIXP audio chipset as well.

I have my sound driver built into the kernel on this system (as I now run Gentoo on it), but I had F9 on it until a couple weeks ago without trouble.  You say lspci doesn't show anything?

Can we see the output?

Well, as it turns out the audio chipset was just being funky. I shutdown the laptop, took out the battery, waiting a few minutes, and then put it back in, booted up, and viola! lspci showed it as ATI IXP audio. I'm assuming the audio wasn't working when I installed F9 since no audio applet was installed in Gnome so I added it and everything appears to be working properly.
