Hi Robert. First time I've seen this thread although "Re" is in the subject 

Could you provide a bit of info please.

Which Fedora version is this? Are you using Gnome, or KDE?

If this is Fedora 8, or 9, they are both using pulseaudio as a sound server, 
and some folks are having problems with it. I disabled it on my Fedora 8 
install, as the sounds didn't work with it enabled. To disable it, simply 
remove the package "alsa-plugins-pulseaudio", and then Alsa will be used 
directly for the sounds. You can always re-install it when the sounds are 

Would you also post the output from the following commands when running as 
cat /proc/asound/cards
cat /proc/asound/version
/sbin/lsmod | grep snd
/sbin/lspci   (just the part for the soundcard will do)

That will do for the moment.


btw. You should not have to add any users to /etc/group with Fedora, as this 
is handled in a different way to Debian installs. It should just work.
