I've seen the sound on my FC3 box stop working after a yum upgrade which
upgraded alsa. What actually happened was the asound.state from the
previous alsa version wasn't compatible with the new version. I had to run
alsamixer and manually unmute the master and/or pcm outputs and adjust the
levels to be appropriate (which immediately fixed the issue). I then wrote
a new asound.state so these levels are reloaded upon reboot.
So my advice is to check your mixer settings!
