    No sound. Help?


    Hello all!

    I'm new to this forum and Linux in general.
    Being fed up with Windows, I decided to switch to SuSE 10.2.
    The thing is that I need to learn to find my way around the new environment, which has been a real pleasure so far.

    I've installed all the latest updates for Gnome and I've configured pretty much most of the system.
    However I don't seem to be able to get my sound card to work. No sound at all.
    I tried to configure the card through YAST, but to avail.
    I should mention that I have a Sound blaster 5.1 sound card and an on-board Realtek ALC201A (AC97) audio chipset.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Try disabling the onboard soundcard from the bios and then see if opensuse will recognise the sound blaster.

    I actually set the SB as the default sound card and it worked.

    Thanks anyway for your response!
