I just changed my OS to Red Hat Linux 8.0 but i can't hear any sound!
I know that the problem is not hardware because it works in Windows XP. So i tryed looking for something with sound, but the only thing i can find is, a dialog where it says that it can't find the sound card.

Please :help: me!

Is it an unusual soundcard? Is it onboard the motherboard? It is not disabled in the bios is it?

Unfortunately, I do not have speakers/sound on my redhat box, so those are all that I can think of. I am sure someone here will know though.

I am using Sound Blaster Live!, and it works in windows so i belive it is a problem with the software.

If there's a Hardware Browser, see if your card is listed. If so, check the mixer or sound properties and make sure the sound is turned up.

if not you might wanna go thru the sound configuration utility, I believe it comes with all of the distros, if you don't know anything about your soundcard though, just select the stuff you do know and then select settings one by one until it works, like for example the irq channel, if you don't know what channel your card uses just select the channels one by one, I think there's only a couple of chioces. That's how I got my sound card to work under old red hat 6.1.....

I solved the problem!
Because that you mentioned that with bios, i just tryed looking around there and saw that plug and play OS was on! then i just switched it to of, and when i started Red Hat it came with a little setup guide and then it worked.
