http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, in Fedora 18 KDE my sound finally works on my laptop (sony vaio vpceb2).:cool: But alsamixer cannot run (even under root) and there is no kmix icon to control the sound :doh: The phonon tab in Multimedia under KDE System settings also hangs. Well this is definitely not very user friendly. (so fedora is not suitable for my parents yet.) Anyway disabling SELinux resolved this issue for me: Code: sed -i s/SELINUX=enforcing/SELINUX=disabled/g /etc/selinux/config && reboot And pray that the developers fix this bug soon. Als if you search sound mixer and right click on (HowTos)
