I've just installed Fedora Core 4 on my new Dimension 5100 and it all
works very well except that I can't get any sound.

I have the onboard Intel sound controller. lspci recognises it as this:

00:1b.0 Class 0403: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
Subsystem: Dell: Unknown device 01ab
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 169
Memory at efebc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
Capabilities: [60] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-
Capabilities: [70] Express Unknown type IRQ 0
Capabilities: [100] Virtual Channel
Capabilities: [130] Unknown (5)

The "configure sound card" app, finds the sound controller, but no sounds
plays.

/etc/modprobe.conf looks like this:

alias scsi_hostadapter ata_piix
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-hda-intel index=0
remove snd-hda-intel { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
alias eth1 e100
alias eth0 orinoco_pci

When I run alsamixer, it only shows one channel - PCM. I'd expect to see a
number of channels.

If anyone has had any luck getting this to work, I'd be very interested in
hearing how.

Thanks,

Dave...

If anyone has any suggestions of a better place to ask these questions
then I'd love to here them.

Thanks,

Dave...

I'd try a Linux newsgroup. Not much discussion of Linux in this newsgroup.
