Fresh install few q's

Hey i just installed Fedora and am about to setup XBMC and PS3 server on it. Few slight hickups though, first is my sound wont work. It is connected to a TV via HDMI to my video card. The sound is detected on HDMI but no output, is this a issue with linux that i need to configure?

Second, I have 5 hard drives in the pc for storage / streaming 2x1tb and 2x2tb all of these aren't being mounted , do I need to edit fstab as it mentions it cant mount them when booting? If so, is there a how to on this process?

Don't know about the sound issue...

But you could always try reading the manpage on fstab.

I was asking because its the first time I have used fedora, is it a common problem? If so, I thought someone could give me some actual advice.

Re: Fresh install few q's

Maybe not common, but not rare either.
I had sound hiccups on two systems when transitioned from 2.6.X to around 3.1 kernel.

In one case I selected the correct 5.1 sound but only got stereo until I powered down (reboot wasn't sufficient).
So as a start there are two tools,

Use 'pavucontrol' and in the configuration tab select the correct hardware proflie ... probbaly "Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output" ,and also adjust the output balance and volume. Sometimes hter eis more than one HDIM output to choose between.

Also in a terminal window use 'alsacontrol' . It's a crufty little terminal graphics tool, but it does give you acces to all the mutes and volumes.

HDMI is not a problem per se - I've used HDMI audio on two systems.
su -
yum -y install pavucontrol alsa-utils

Editing /etc/fstab isn't rocket science, but it must be done correctly.

You might want to try 'fwfstab'
su -
yum - y install fwfstab

It's a gui tool for editing /etc/fstab that at least avoids the hazard of a mis-edit, and ensues al lthe fields are fille in.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
