Sound also failed for me when I upgraded my virtual machine from F10.
It also failed on a new virtual machine install of F11. Status for
sound is as follows:
VM upgrade of F10 to F11:
Unable to remove Alsa because of dependency hell. (Most
everything is tied to it.)
Download and installed Open Sound System driver rpm:
Got sound and a mixer but no master volume control for Gnome taskbar.
VM F11 install:
No sound device. PA Manager/Device Chooser and find device or
defaults to null.
Enabled OSS sound support in /etc/modprobe.d/dist-oss.conf
After restart: Sound card detected. Alsa mixer works. No master
volume control for Gnome.
I also have virtual machine instances of openSUSE 11.1 and Ubuntu 9.04
installed on the same machine. Sound works in both. As far as I am
aware both distros use Pulse Audio. So, where or how did Fedora
developers get off track and derail sound?
