Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

i've just installed red hat 8.0 but it seems there's some problem with the sound card. red-hat detected it and it's installed but i can't hear anything.

i have sound on board from via tehnologies . VT8233 AC97 Audio Controller

can anyone help?

thanx in advance
Since no one else has replied I'll ask the stupid questions...

has the sound worked on this mainboard before (eg windoze)
are the speakers plugged into the correct slot?
are the speakers powered?
have you tried running the sound as root?
what sort of sounds are you trying to generate?
Also, check to make sure that the sound is turned up in your mixer settings. Alsa has their weird thing with defaulting to mute when installed.
