Go to the alsa lists first. I found some posts about your card. I saw
people complaining about distortion, but not low volume. They solved using
I also created rpms for alsa 1.0.18. They work, but they did not solve
the problems with my laptop microphone. In fact, in my case, the headphones
stopped working with them, so I went back to 1.0.17. But they may be the
solution for you.
These are the source rpms. I have them built for F8 only.
