No sound on opensuse 11.0


Hello everyone,

I just recently installed Linux and i updated my software, and just finally finished getting 3D acceleration, and only just realized that i have no sound. I'm pretty new to Linux, so i almost have no idea what I'm doing. I tried looking up my driver information on Windows but only said, "Realtek High Definition Audio". i tried looking on other sites to try to fix it and ended up with this.

0 snd_hda_intel

0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xf0600000 irq 22

Oh, yeah i tried looking up Realtek in Yast but didn't find anything.

beyond this point i have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.

i don't know if any of the above information has any value and would appreciate if anyone replied with an answer or a referral to a place where i can find one.

Did it have sound at any time?

Try opening a terminal and using "arecord-l" to see what is recognized. If you have or download and burn an openSUSE 11.0 live-cd will it boot with sound? I'm no expert here, but no one else responded.

And there is this if it should have sound.

If you go into Administrator Settings, Hardware, Sound and click on the "Other" box and pick sound from the menu, you can see if your sound levels are correctly set, perhaps changing a few settings to see what helps. I remembered that when I installed openSUSE 11.0 the sound level for "front", the critical setting for my system, was initially quite low.

You might also download and install the RPM for lshw, and
run it in a terminal (after "man lshw") to see what it tells you. See ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/repo...openSUSE_11.0/ for 32 or 64 bit.

Check if the alsa mixer is open click on the loudspeaker and choice for mixer windows,
If the settings are correct and still no sound
Ask for a terminal become root and give us the output of the command
grep |lspci

Run both "alsaconf" as root (in the console) and the YaST2 sound wizard. Also make sure that you are a member of the audio group. Also check your mixer program to make sure that sound isn't muted.

It worked for me.

I used the "grep | lspci" as root getting the information for my sound chip, but it is found and configured.

If SUSE hasn't configured it:

What is your device for sound production? What make and model of laptop, motherboard with sound, or sound card. What is written on the sound card and on the sound chip on the card?

Post back to us.

What about this?

I don't have KDE 4 or the experience with this kind of thing. I appears from google that Intel 82801h is the controller and AlC883 is the codec for it. I found this.
http://forums.opensuse.org/hardware/...-oss-11-a.html

When you open Sound in Hardware, is there information on the Sound Configuration page identifying your sound chip and driver? If you click on Other and click for a sound test, is there sound?

Assuming that your settings in Administrator Settings ...Sound, Other are correct, and the KDE(alsa?) settings (for me KMix) are also, you might try the option with phonon xine. I found a RPM that looks right if you don't already have it installed.
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...srodzaj=3&dist[]=46

I repeat that I can't swear that I know what I'm doing here.

You didn't try a live-cd and to open Sound, Other and try a sound test?

Try to google some more with ALC883 or Intel 82801H.

Gett'n close. Smell the bear.

But

I just reread the post from jschiwal and his advice sounds good, that is try to run "alsaconf" then try to reconfigure on the Sound Configuration page, then look to the settings in Other and in alsa/KMix. As I think I mentioned, I making it up as I go along.

But

Have you looked at and tried to adjust the settings in Hardware, Sound, Other, Volume? Have you tried different jacks? I have a Gigabyte GA-M56S-S3 mother board with onboard sound. The sound signal is produced as the Front source, playing through the line-out jack to a pair of stereo speakers with built in amplification.

Congratulation on your progress. How did you get it to work?
