Thanks Scott.
The funny thing is if I put the laptop in hibernate
and bring it out of hibernate the sound then begin to
work. If I restart then the sound refuse to work. The
chipset that I have uses the intel8x0 module.
The sound works under Ubuntu linux also, but I prefer
FC4 I have always used either Slackware (server), or
Redhat Desktop and I don't like Ubuntu even if the
sound works. It also works under Suse 9x, so that
tells me it is a FC4 config issue. What it is I don't
Please help one of you Linux Gurus out there!!!


Anyway the laptop works great except that one sound
