    SUSE Linux 10.0 - No sound

    I have just installed SUSE Linux 10.0 on my PC and the install seems to have gone fine. However, there's no sound (I have installed SUSE, Ubuntu and Mandriva on previous occasions, on different machines, and managed to sort most post-install glitches)
    Specs|: PIV 2.8 CPU, 24.4 GB partition on a 300GB Maxtor PATA, 1 GB Dual DDR RAM, Gigabyte 81K 1100 motherboard with onboard sound (Realtek AC'97 Audio).
    My sound is SPDIF out through a simple RCA jack (not optical) and into Creative Soundworks 2.1 THX digital speakers. North Bridge : IntelŪ 875P MCH
    South Bridge : IntelŪ ICH5R Integrated Peripherals : IntelŪPRO /100 VE Ethernet Controller Texas Instrument IEEE 1394 chip Realtek ALC655 CODEC

    Everything works fine in WinXP.

    I have tweaked Alsamixer and Kmix and KsCD and Amarok to no avail. I have tried to configure sound card and CD/DVD players in YaST. I have tried to configure the KsCD player in YaST. Have limited knowledge of Linux and am running out of ideas. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    for your sound

    try this

    audio output device as /dev/dsp and the mixer as /dev/mixe

    put these in your sound card config.

    Make sure permissions are set right on /dev/cdrom (which is usually a link
    to the actual hardware device).

    1. Find actual hardware device:

    ls -l /dev/cdrom

    2. Set permissions as root (say, /dev/hdc is
    the hardware device)

    chmod 644 /dev/hdc

    3. Also do the same for /dev/mixer
