Based on my recent experience, it usually works, but often requires some
tinkering. It even works from older distros than FC2, but be prepared for
some improvized and sometimes dirty manual rpm -Uvh --force work :-I.
I would like to add a few steps to Seth's instructions:
In case you didn't have selinux enabled previously (the relabeling may be a
good idea anyhow):
7.1) yum install selinux-policy-targeted policycoreutils
(or selinux-policy-strict if you please)
7.2) touch /.autorelabel
This will force selinux relabeling on next boot.
Make sure the next kernel to boot is the new (selinux-enabled) one.
I'm not sure if this (between 7 and 8) is the best place for it. It seems to
Also, make sure you have enough disk space (and memory) for a large yum
upgrade. May sound dumb, but I just managed to get my yum upgrade
interrupted by both insufficiencies :-).

I got it almost working. I've installed alsa-driver rpm form
atrpms.net and then started alsaconfig, which found my card in
database, added some lines to /etc/modprobe.conf and started alsa
(/etc/init.d/alsasound start). Then I had to pull up sliders in
alsamixer and I have sound, but I have to do this every time I boot my
laptop. I added /etc/init.d/alsasound et the end of rclocal script,
but this deas not work without running alsaconfig. There are two things:
1.alsamixer and gnome-mixer do not save volume levels (I always get
muted PCM and phones sliders (both volume 0% and mute checkbox)).
2.Before starting alsaconf when I want to play some music with e.g.
aplay I got error:
