No Sound / Audio with Felicia.
I see there are quite a few postings with the same or similar problems with audio. I have spent several hours reading and trying to resolve my problem with no joy. My sound worked fine with Daryna and Elyssa, only ALSA. I tried the upgrade after I backed up my documents. I tried the upgrade twice with the same results, and I tried installing from the CD twice with the same results. No sound. I've tried some of the suggestions in the forum with no results. Everything works fine it seems except there is no audio at all.
Here are some of my specifics:
There is a red X on the volume control located on the menu bar. When trying to open the volume control a message appears: “No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found.” Nothing opens when preferences are clicked. In Sound Preferences, both auto detect and alsa, clicking on “Test” produces this error message: audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect stream: Invalid argument.
I have an onboard soundcard on an older IBM desktop, Pentium III 650, 512Mb memory.
Here is my lspci for my computer.:
