I have been having some serious sound problems since "updating" through the internet. I am running SuSE 10, and my sound card is a Creative Soundblaster Audigy LS.
I am experiencing either choppy audio or none at all. When running the Helix engine in amaroK, audio skips and breaks very often. Using the Xine engine, it just skips all of my music alltogether. It won't play any of them. Same thing with XMMS, it just ignores them all and skips through to the bottom of the playlist.
When I enter the Sound System control panel in YaST, I get the following error:
Unable to start the sound server to retrieve possible sound I/O methods.
Only automatic detection will be availible.
In the Sound System controls itself, I can't apply any settings because the sound server refuses to start. There is only Auto Detect in the sound device setting.
Is this just my soundcard not being supported, or what? I don't understand, the problems have been the same through two installs.
