What drivers do you need?

It is generally easier to install drivers prepared for Fedora than try and convert something.

I'm guessing then as you don't say, that you don't have sound.

First thing to check is that nothing is muted or set to low volume in alsamixer -c0
If everything is okay there then look at Pulseaudio Volume Control (install pavucontrol if you don't have it) and check again nothing is muted etc. Also check in the configuration tab that the correct out is selected. If you have a choice there try the other options too.
