    Suse Sound?


    I'm rather new Linux Suse. The installation was flawless, except in getting sound to work. The sound card in this computer is one of the better Creative Sound Blaster types. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Try typing in a terminal/command line:

    Code:
    alsamixer
    Then unmute anything that is muted. Sometimes that helps.

    Did it recognize your sound card? If not, then run alsaconf. If it did, do like soulbrothax831 said and make sure nothing is muted.

    A different sound card??

    Ok, I tried everything and nothing works...no sound. I even pulled the card out and reinstalled it in another slot.
    Is there a better card I should replace a Sound Blaster Audigy with?

    Don't give up so quickly. Audigy is supported in Linux AFAIK.
    What is the output of lsmod ? Please post it as well as the output of lspci.
    I\'m so tired .....

    Did you try configuring it with YaST?

    I don't know what you mean or where one would look for the Ismod or Ispci information. I tried configuring the card with Yast, and used two or three types of sound blaster drivers that was listed with Yast. In the previous notes, I was able to get alsamixer to come up. I didn't get anything when I entered alsaconf.
    I look forward to your response...thanks.

    Go to Control Center>Yast2 Modules>Hardware>Sound

    And see if your sound card is listed there. If it is, you can just click configure.

    Ok, I went to the Control Center and eventually found my card there. It was listed but was not configured. I tried every driver available, but none would work with my card. I kept getting the following message.
    "The kernal module, snd-emu 10k1 for sound support could not be loaded".
    I tried every selection there for Creative sound blaster cards, but no luck.
    Anyway, thanks for the help.

    That should have worked.
    Was there a generic driver listed?
