View Full Version : My Toshiba laptop doesn't sound with Fedora 7

29th October 2007, 05:03 AM
I'm trying to abandon window$ XP, so I recently installed Fedora 7. Dual boot is O.K.

But after test of sound in installation, and answering NO when asking if any sound had been heard, I revised specifications from Toshiba (Satellite P105-S6104, Core 2 Duo 1,6 MHz, 1GB RAM, 120 GB HDD, built in harman/kardon stereo speakers), and found that .."SRS TrueSurround XT is available in the Microsoft Windows operating system only".

Fedora identified the sound card as
Vendor: Intel Corporation
Model: 82801G (1CH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller
Module: snd-hda-intel

Toshiba says about my sound:
Built-in Harman/kardon stereo speakers, sound volume control dial,
SRS Labs audio enhancements:
SRS TruSurround XT virtual surround sound,
SRS WOW stereo enhancement.

After test, Fedora says:
Error, you can create /root/scs config.log/root/scsrun.log (???) on the system tab and file a new bug at http://bugzilla.redhat.com.

Won't my laptop let me listen anything from the Fedora partition?

I didn't find any sugestion reading again the installation guide.

I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

This page suggests it can be setup to have sound, the
laptop has a buggy acpi and DSDT

hopefully you have a high speed internet connection cuz the first thing you need to do is a full system update. open a console and type

(enter root password)
yum -y update

if it is acpi related the newer kernels may give you better results.
