Onboard Sound on A PC Chips MotherBoard


Hi I just put in my punny back up mobo and now I can't get anysound. I was a useing my Creative Labs Sound Aodugiy 2 ZS, but my back up board only has two pci slots so I can't use it. Well anyway I am stuck with the onboard sound card, and there isn't any sound what so ever. When I run alsaconf it names the card as VIA 8235 and the chipset as C-Media Electronics CMI 9761 what is the driver that I need to get sound on Suse Linux 9.2 Pro.

Here is what I also get when I type lsmod:

Have you tried any of your mixers to see if sound is just muted?
good luck.

Well I gave up on the onboard audio and found a way to us my sound card . I am now using a wireless ethernet adaptor to get on line. So no more pci wireless card for now.

well thanks for the reply anyway.

But I do have a question, but before I ask I guess you should know what card I am using.

I am using the Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS. I have sound, like all the notifications, and warning sounds and all, but when I go and play a CD there is no sound.

Oh I am on Suse 9.2 pro if that helps. So doese anyone have any idea why I don't have sound?

Thanks in advanced.

Do you have a sound cable hooked up to the cdrom from the card? If not try upgrading xmms to at least version 1.2.10 and choose the digital audio extraction option, or you could just plug in a cable.
good luck.
