No sound with SuSE 9.1, Crystal CS4205 Dell Inspiron 8200
I've recently installed SuSE 9.1 on my Dell Inspiron 8200 (specs below). Everything works great except for the fact that I have no sound. The chipset is a Crystal Audio CS4205. SuSE's YaST automatically recognized it as CAM AC'97 Audio Controller but this doesn't work. When I delete it and autoconfigure again it give me an IRQ error. Does anyone else have a similiar problem with this particular chipset? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
What happens when you open kamix as a normal user? Does it load with a red x ("disabled" icon) on top of it?
I have recently run into a strange but simple sound issue: kamix and sound programs won't work properly. I found out that they were pointing to non-existing devices, such as /dev/mixer. I edited them to /dev/mixer0 and everything worked.
kamix does not run when I try to start it from the command line. I get the following
kamix: error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
XMMS gives the following error upon trying to play a sound file:
Please check that:
Your soundcard is configured properly
You have the correct output pluggin selected
No other program is blocking the soundcard
Hmmm... I'm confused. I had no error like your first one (libasound...) but I did saw the xmms error. Guess its a generic error message.
Did you try to use other sound output plugin in xmms? You can Control+P to choosed preferences and change the output plugin.
