Try the following:
$ alsamixer -c0
after adjusting those to your preference save your settings with
$ su -c '/sbin/alsactl store'
put in your password and settings should be saved for next reboot, ***unless*** an update(s) breaks your configuration and let us hope that those things don't happen :)
Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
I've been using a floppy boot disk as reserve if my HD boot fails, But
it appears floppy support as now been removed. Why? Then how can I
create an emergency media that is flexible enough to be updated as required?
I was asked to assist connecting a Fedora linux system for video
conferencing with oovoo.com. It is apparent that they support Mac and
Does anyone have any experience in using the Mac installation for oovoo
for Fedora? Can anyone make recommendations for connections that allow
video conferencing with Fedora.
I have a terebyte sata drive that I need to securely wipe clean. It
originally had 2 partitions. I deleted them using `fdisk', rebooted,
and then as root ran
shred -vz /dev/sdd
The drive is capable of about 60MB/sec, but shred is only "shredding"
about 25MB every 5 seconds according to its output. Since the default
number of passes is 25, this works out to about 5 days.
The `shred' process is running at 100% CPU, presumably computing
the special random patterns for erasure. Since I have 4 CPUs
would creating 4 unformatted partions on the drive and then running
shred -vz /dev/sdd1
shred -vz /dev/sdd2
shred -vz /dev/sdd3
shred -vz /dev/sdd4
in parallel cut my time? Would be just as secure?
Ok, I just lost enthusiasm in further use of skype. Being closed source was
bad enough already, but I tolerated it due to its good-enough quality,
reliability and free-of-charge use for skype-to-skype calls. But now that
Microsoft is taking it over, I suddenly lost faith that these good features
will still be there from now on (not to mention Linux support).
Thus the question: is there a FOSS VoIP app that provides roughly the same
quality, reliability and free-as-in-beer service?
I do know that there are such VoIP apps, but I am not familiar with the
quality of service, availability and accessibility of each of those. I am
willing to migrate and start persuading my existing skype contacts (which are
scattered all over the globe) to migrate to a FOSS solution as well. But I
cannot do that if this alternative does not provide functionality that at
least matches that of skype. It has to be up to the task.
So which one is on the top of the list, in your opinion?
I'm having issues with my builtin audio. At first I thought it was the
new speakers I bought. I know they're not quite as my Cambridge
Soundworks but the external 5.1 decoder is having issues so I figured
it was time. I hear a high tinny noise and assumed it was the cheap
amplifier but after plugging in some old but nice SGI headphones I
still heard it.
To that end I'm in the market for an inexpensive sound card but don't
want to go too cheap and get something equivalent to my onboard audio.
I found the Asus Xonar DG for a decent price but it uses the
CMI8786 which is supported in alsa 1.0.24 (which I have) OR kernel
2.6.38, which I don't. I'm really hoping the OR is right and it's not
supposed to be an AND.
Interestingly enough this chip doesn't appear to have internal volume
controls so I'll have to rely on PulseAudio.
Anyone have this card working (well)? Even though it's not a big
investment I'd like to know someone has it working.
