I'm a Mageia user since version 3 and it is my first time I make a decision to migrate to fedora due to a problem I faced about absence of sound with the latest version of Mageia, so no one has given me a solution about it, evenn in there official websites, forums and irc channal. The is with all applications : vlc, totem, youtube with firefox ..... So my big problem is I downloaded Fedora Workstation 64bit live dvd and I faced again the same problem of sound. Please any one can tell me what is going on ?

Any logs, to see if the hardware is being detected? Since it quit working before you put fedora on, and fedora has no sound, I am thinking hardware failure.

Run lspci and paste the output into the question you posted here, do the same with the output of lsmod as well. that will show what is being detected and loaded by fedora.

You can install pavucontroll, and check if the audio have different profile.


dnf -y install pavucontrol
