This is a known issue on FC4. What you need to do is open the mixer, and
look for the switch "analogue/digital output jack" and turn it on. Then
your sound will play just fine. I don't know why it default to the off
position, but it's frustrating if you don't know about it.
I can't seem to find this "analogue/digital output jack" switch
Opening "Volume Control" from the Gnome menu brings up the Alsa Mixer.
The playback panel has muting/volume controls for Headphone, PCM, Front,
Front Mic, Surround, Center, LFE, Line-in, CD, Microphone, and PC
Speaker, all of which are turned on. (I've selected all these displays
to be visible from the Mixer "Preferences".)
Running alsamixer from a Terminal window brings up a display with the
same entries, none of which are muted.
Both displays also show the channel mode as "2ch" and the two "input
source" options as "mic".
So... does anyone know where can I find this analog/digital output jack
