Audio stopped


when I run the audio test it works perfectly, but If I try to play a wave file in audacity or from firefox I get silence.

1) I have new sound card SB0570 [SB Audigy SE]
the card was working perfectly yesterday and all direct tests are fine

2) I also have the builtin VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller
working perfectly yesterday and all direct tests are fine

3) I have checked the connection to the jacks and they are set correctly

4) I have set the primary card to VT8233/ and set the connection
and like wise for the other. ( I checked each of these settings separately one at a time)

5) pulse audio configure is enabled

6) the MIDI drivers are loaded

7) the last update covered many files on the system
audio was working prior to but not after....

This is probably dealt with better by the OpenSUSE forums.
They have a script to determine multimedia issues: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...-reddwarf.html

Solved: missing Audio

Thanks for the response, But I have found a (strange) solution.
I have to clear out the sound configuration (both built in and external card. Also removed the card).
I then reconfigured the built it piece.
This is where it is strange. Within this process you can select a quick, normal or manual configuration.
If I select the quick or normal solution the test works but attempts with the utilities directly or as plug-in to a browser return silence.

When I use the manual configuration, I opened it up but did no make any changes. I then completed the install.
Now both test and utilities work.
P.S. I tried this after I got the bug fix dealing with an incorrect volume set ting to 0....

Volume set to zero or mute is a common issue in GNU/Linux (not so much these days but anyway)

What reconfiguration script/program did you run? Is it commandline?

The last update happened before the 7th of June.
