    Hey
    You need to find out if you have a compatible soundcard.
    check the konsole with
    $ lspci -v
    to see if there is any Multimedia audio
    and check here (ALSA list) if anything matches.
    If alsaconf does not work you might need to install manually through ALSA. That is if the soundcard is compatible.

    Generally speaking it is, but there's always a chance for hardware issues. I've read lots of success stories with laptops running Suse and Ubuntu. You could also try Slackware 10.2 as version 10.0 is now a bit outdated.

    sound problems

    I run SUSE 10.2 and i have a gateway 7322GZ , my sound card is working fine ubuntoo and slack have compatibility problems. go with a solid distro also open kmix and make sure that the external settings are turned off this will keep the sound card from working , i have used suse for the past two years and have never had a sound card problem
