sound card not detected!

I loaded f17 alpha , installed it , but got no sound , (card not detected at all)

i'm not sure what soundcard is mine (probably realtek, not sure), is there a way to make f17 detect it?
my lappy is dell inspiron n series.

i'll file bug anyway.

so please pitch in....!

Re: sound card not detected!

You can probably use lspci to determine what sound card you have.

PHP Code:
[glenn@localhost ~>$ lspci grep -i audio
00
:05.0 Audio devicenVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2
That would be a good starting point.

thanx for pointing out "lscpi" , i have Intel internal card and ATI soundcard(for hdmi out i guess)

Code:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 06)
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc Redwood HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5600 Series]
i will update pulseaudio as leigh suggested and see if sound is detected.

Update:
Well it turns out that updating pulseaudio , solves this issue , there is no point in filing a bug , as fix is an update away , right?

Re: sound card not detected!

It's a well known issue that's already documented in the common bugs page and, indeed, fixed by an update, so yes, no need to file a bug.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Commo...dio-consolekit

it really is a good idea to read the common bugs page when running a pre-release especially, it'll help you deal with this kind of problem quickly.
