No Sound In Mythdora 10.21
I am having troubles with audio on my recently installed Mythdora system. I have no sound at all.
Here is my setup:
ECS GeForce 8200A Black Edition
AMD Phenom X4 9650
4GB DDR2-1066 in Ganged mode
SoundBlaster Audigy2 ZS Gamer
eVGA GeForce 9800GT 512MB
VBox USB-3560 external tuner (not working)
(1) Samsung 320GB SATA 3G HD (45GB Linux partition where Mythdora is installed)
(1) WD Caviar Blue (?) 500GB (Video drive)
I had this exact same problem with Mythbuntu, which is why I uninstalled it and put Mythdora on instead, since Fedora by nature seems to be better at hardware detection. I've heard two different stories as to why there are sound issues:
1. The NVidia binary drivers bork your system, and this I could believe, because I tried to install MythTV on an older Ubuntu system and when I updated the NVidia binaries, I lost my HVR-1600.
2. The problem is in the kernel.
Is there a workaround for this problem, because I am trying to kick Vista off of my hard drive, and this is a fairly big stumbling block. If there isn't a workaround, is there some way of downgrading the kernel below what 10.21 came with? And if all fails, anyone one a six-week-old 9800GT, because I'm going back to ATI. As much as I dislike them, at least they've got semi-competent open source drivers.
