Sound in openSUSE extremely quiet
I just installed openSUSE the other day on a partition on an external hard drive and the audio is extremely quiet. I have to turn my speakers up all the way in order to hear stuff and even then the audio is kinda distorted and still pretty low. I have PCM, Master, and Speaker turned up all the way in KMixer and Alsamixer (I've heard people talking about a channel called, "Front" but I don't have it.)
I'm really new to Linux so if you could treat me like so I'd appreciate it haha. Will give any info you need.
Here is some basic information to start.
Linux linux-i04s 22.214.171.124-0.1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2009-10-26 15:49:03 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
# u1Nb.sYhCI1EfSbC:82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
Try tu run
and adjust the volume
after setting the mixer, the next command should be
Check your card manufacturer, and mail on Suse lists to ask what soundcards their snd_hda_intel is configured for. All the makor chip manufacturers do one(intel, amd realtek, via, etc.), and there's a menu in the kernel config to select support for them
I just reinstalled openSUSE and chose GNOME this time, and now the sound mixer is showing my card as, "Internal Audio 1 output Analog Stereo Output" And trying to start Alsamixer returns this:
linux-4civ:/home/VerticalHorizon # alsamixer
ALSA lib pulse.c:229: (pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused
cannot open mixer: Connection refused
EDIT: I was just (barely) listening to some music and boom, audio is now completely gone.
I opened PulesAudio volume control and the little noise indicator is bouncing and showing signs of sound, but I hear nothing.
