You are gonna want to make a dir for the alsa src. You will probably want to be root for this. 'su' into root.

mkdir /usr/src/alsa

change directory to the alsa source directory

cd /usr/src/alsa

Then you need to download 4 packages to that directory. You can use wget for this or however you want to get them there.

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ft...r-1.0.8.tar.bz2
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ft...b-1.0.8.tar.bz2
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ft...s-1.0.8.tar.bz2
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa/ft...s-1.0.8.tar.bz2

extract all of files

bunzip2 alsa-driver-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-driver-1.0.8.tar
bunzip2 alsa-lib-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-lib-1.0.8.tar
bunzip2 alsa-oss-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-oss-1.0.8.tar
bunzip2 alsa-utils-1.0.8.tar.bz2
tar -xf alsa-utils-1.0.8.tar

Now complete the following. Now this will differ from what is listed on the alsa website for intel sound cards, you will not be specifying a card type. You will need to be root for this. So 'su' into root.

cd alsa-driver-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

cd ../alsa-lib-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

cd ../alsa-oss-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

cd ../alsa-utils-1.0.8
./configure;make;make install

now just to be sure that everything is set right you will want to run snddevices

cd ../alsa-driver-1.0.8
./snddevices

after this reboot the machine.

After the machine has come back up. From the shell run 'alsamixer' and change your volume settings. Or just go to the sound icon on the panel and adjust them there.

And make sure your speakers are actually plugged in. I forgot to make sure and thought this whole process didn't work.

Heads up! Take a look at the date of this how-to....

What could have possibly changed in the last 4 years?

Considering that this was probably posted on Fedora Core 3 ( hint, hint )
ALSA is now at version 1.0.18... not 1.0.8
And the intel ICH chip version is probably a few point releases later as well.

I thought this post was necessary because someone has just linked this thread as a solution for a newb (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=210338)

Also, all of the alsa packages you should ever need are already in the fedora repos. No need to compile.

Just be keeping this in mind...
