This is one of problem we face after installing Linux successfully . Sound Play major role in exploring different sites . in this blog we are discussing simple configuration of sound .
If your system includes a sound adapter supported by Red Hat Linux, you can use sndconfig to configure your adapter. If you're unsure whether your system's sound adapter is supported, check the Red Hat Linux hardware compatibility database at http://hardware.redhat.com. Several popular cards are not fully compatible with Red Hat Linux, so it's best to check the database before wasting time trying to configure incompatible hardware.

To configure your system's adapter, launch a terminal window and issue the following commands:

su -
sndconfig

The Sound Configuration utility's Introduction dialog box, appears. The utility has the same user interface as that used by the text-based Red Hat Linux installation program:

* Use the arrow keys to move from control to control.
* Use the spacebar to select an item, such as a checkbox.
* Use Enter to click a button.

Click the OK button and press Enter to continue.

The utility probes your system, seeking supported sound adapters. If the probe fails, the utility announces the failure and lets you select your system's adapter from a list of supported adapters .

After a sound adapter has been identified, the utility may present a dialog box that lets you configure hardware options . To determine the proper settings, refer to your hardware documentation .

Next, the utility plays a sample sound .

If you hear the sound, you can exit the utility. If not, you can go back and select a different sound adapter. If you don't hear the sound, check that your speakers are plugged in and, if necessary, powered on. Otherwise, you may spend time trying to reconfigure a sound adapter that's actually working fine.

If the utility suspects that your sound card includes a MIDI synthesizer, it presents a series of dialog boxes that let you configure the MIDI facility. These dialog boxes resemble those pertaining to audio.
