This morning I downloaded and installed the latest kernel avaliable (2.6.10-1.741_FC3) using yum update. I then installed the newest version of Ndiswrapper and made sure my wireless device was configured.
I rebooted and had no problems at all. I surfed the web and then I opened XMMS. I wanted to listen to some music. I selected one of the mp3's from my playlist and it began to play on XMMS but no audio came out of my speakers.
I checked to see if the audio cord was plugged into the jack on the back of the computer and also made sure that the volume was turned up. Still nothing.. So I tried a quick reboot still didn't help.
I have both OSS and ASLA installed (these were installed by default) and opened the command line and tried this,
root@kansas_sucks (/home/jordie) /dev/random > /dev/dsp
and still didn't hear anything at all. Does anyone know what this problem is and how can I fix it? I am still in the process of learning advanced Linux and am not very familar with the audio part of it yet.
Here is some additional information about my box.
