Fedora Core 4, no Sound

I just installed FC4 on an old Compaq Deskpro EN P500

everything seems to work fine, besides the fact that there is no Sound.

From what I recall, that system should be using AC97 audio chip set. Which should have been auto detected, right? It works on my other machines.

Has anyone come across this problem? How can I resolve this?

check the mixer settings.  I've heard of a lot of people where the alsa driver was defaulted to mute

I've already done that... before I post on here.

I've also came very close to forcing a driver installation of AC97. but that could be a bit different.

Or, maybe I'll just endup upgrading to FC5..... I have been using it in my laptop for awhile now... and its pretty stable.

Sorry I don't run FC so I won't be of too much help.  The only other thing I can think of is checking the hardware setting to ensure the module is loaded and the correct driver is loaded for the device.  Beyond that I'm worthless, sorry.

Make sure first audio device is enabled in system BIOS.
Next, install and run alsa and alsatools via YUM ; command would be  :    yum   -y  install   alsa*
I'm pretty sure AC97 chipset should be detected and configured properly by ( not only) latest alsatools in FC4.

yup.. seems like the system didn't like your sound card.  I google around a bit and found that ESS soundcard auto detection might not be working properly... there are some suggestions here that you might want to try: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?t=234814

That didn't do the trick either.

I got the mixer to show up, but no sound while playing CD audio.... T_T

I am gonna just go and insert a new sound card instead of that freaking onboard one....
