No sound at all alsa/pulse

Hey guys, I've been workin on this all morning/afternoon and haven't gotten anywhere.

I just installed Fedora 8, patched it and everything seems to be running ok. I've got compiz running and everything.

However I don't have any sound.

I tried various fixes to get pulse audio working, but gave up and yum remove pulseaudio* 'd it.

I installed alsa-driver however I haven't been able to get sound working at all. Historically, I've gotten sound on ubuntu but thats the only other distro.

It's the sound on a dell Inspiron 1420 laptop.

my aplay-l

options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-hda-intel index=0
options snd-hda-intel model=ref
Just as a note, even with alsa-utils installed i can't use alsaconf, it's not a command. neither is /sbin/alsaconf (as root or regular user)

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Test devices in Gnome: System->Preferences->Hardware->Sound

Make some noise:
sudo cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp

Get additional pulseaudio programs
su -c "yum -y install pavucontrol pavumeter padevchooser paprefs"

Plug speakers in. Adjust speaker volume knob. Adjust the levels with pavucontrol, gnome-volume-control, aumix and/or kmix.

Fedora 9 is scheduled for release on April 29, yes it could even be on-time for once, but probably won't include the latest version of pulseaudio.

Pulseaudio 0.9.11 "glitch-free" version should be out soon, but you will likely have to build it from source, since strict rpm packaging requirements prevent most bleeding-edge rpm submissions from making it into general distribution.

search for " Dell Vostro 1400 Intel HDA on 64bit Fedora 8". I had the same problem.

Trick in /etc/modprobe.conf

Hope this helps.
