ALSA Problem of Fedora 11 on Compaq Presario CQ35-240TX

When I get my new Compaq Presario CQ35-240TX, of course, the first thing is to install Fedora ;)

But unfortunately, after installation there is no sound! It seems there is something wrong with the driver configuration.

Here is a solution to this:

Add these two line at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/dist.conf

options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable=1 index=0
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1

Everything goes smoothly now.

When I upgrade to Fedora 12 with kernel 2.6.32. This solution works well too.


This is the platform on Fedora 11.

The environment of my Fedora 11:

uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Sat Oct 17 11:09:52 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

rpm -qa | grep alsa
