Sound, 3D, audio/video playback broken on Suse-x86_64
I just got an Athlon-64 computer with a K8M890M-M motherboard, and the experience has been less than stellar thus far. I've managed to fix a few things (broken xine) and learned that others are not fixable (No Flash 9 for me), but two main issues stand out:
1. No sound. YaST seems to have a driver (via-82xx) for the card, VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97, but that's it. Trying to use Control Center to start/stop anything is fruitless (it just loops). Trying to start artsd from a terminal is just as useless, entering the same demented loop:
2. No 3-D, and the nVidia installer is seriously broken. I've tried using YaST to download the module - complete fail. After changing xorg.conf, it does worse than crash, it completely locks up my screen.
When I try to use nVidia's installer, the problem is so absurd it's comical: Itseemsasthoughtheinstallerhasnoconceptofthespacecharacter. It writes out text horribly broken like that, and after accepting the license and telling it to try and compile a module, the script just freezes, and I have to ^C and resume scratching my head.
Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance! :scratch:
From a console, run '/usr/sbin/hwinfo --sound'. That should probe the soundcard and tell you which driver to load. Then run '/sbin/modinfo <drivername>' to find out which drivers it depends on. Use lsmod to see that they are all loaded. If not, modprobe them one at a time.
Go to the nvidia website and download the driver for x64, and copy the SuSE installation instructions. Install the driver manually, then run SaX2 to configure the graphics card.
Did you manage to get the Sound working?
I am having the same problem with my "ASUSTeK VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller" under SUSE 10.2. I have loaded all of the dependent modules by hand as recommeneded (modprobe <drivername>) but still no luck.
