I have Creative Audigy SB sound card. It doesn't work on F10. When logging
in to KDE, KDE says something about pulse audio doesn't work, and phonon is
falling back to use Audigy, but I still don't have any sound.
I tried GNOME and still doesn't have sound.
I thought there used to be "system-config-soundcard" , but I couldn't find
that either. Below is some relevant output of lspci and lsmod in case it
helps diagnosing the problem.
I still have FC 7 on the system (multi-boot), and just confirmed that the
sound works on FC 7.
Thanks for any help.

Try opening alsamixer as below, as maybe some sliders are down, or controls
muted. The "M" key does the mute/unmute. Check the "Analog A" switch.
alsamixer -D :hw0
If that fails to work, disable pulseaudio, with the command below.
yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio
Doing this will also remove the kde-settings-pulseaudio package
Reboot, and see if the sounds are now working with pulseaudio out of the
All the best to you, and the worst to pulseaudio.
