Sound doesn’t work correctly by default on Fedora 12 install.

Basically, make sure that

  1. blacklist.conf has the blacklist snd-pcsp line enabled (this is needed to disable the default “auto-detected” sound driver.
  2. From various sources online, add the correct reference to the “sound driver”

Edit /etc/modrobe.d/* to add options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=dell, then it did. Not sure why auto mode doesn’t work.

I added it to my LOCAL.CONF file.
Also, make sure PULSEAUDIO is installed to get access to the SOUND VOLUME CONTROL.

Some references where I found this info.
