Lost sb16 after upgrade to OpenSuse 10.1


After the upgrade from 10.0 to 10.1 I lost the Creative Labs SB16 card. It worked previously. In Yast I get a dark space where the card should be listed,under I get two notes:
Configured as sound card number
Driver snd-sb16

When I try to add the Creative Labs SB-16 it fails, says there is an error with the module. At one point it was going to add it as the third card.

I deleted the sound files in /etc/modprobe.d and tried again but got the same results. I remember a few versions back I had to add modprobe in a boot.local file but could not find it this time - perhaps the system is trying to load it twice.


here is what I get at bootup:

<4>snd_sb16_csp: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
<4>snd_sb16_dsp: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
<4>snd_sb16: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
<3>ALSA sound/isa/sb/sb16.c:739: Sound Blaster 16 soundcard not found or device busy
<3>ALSA sound/isa/sb/sb16.c:743: In case, if you have AWE card, try snd-sbawe module
<4>snd_sb16: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
<3>ALSA sound/isa/sb/sb16.c:739: Sound Blaster 16 soundcard not found or device busy
<3>ALSA sound/isa/sb/sb16.c:743: In case, if you have AWE card, try snd-sbawe module



any suggestions?


thanks in advance

got system sounds, still no MP3

running alsoconf as su got me system sounds and after than I was able to get Yast to find the Soundblaster 16 legacy card and I could run the test.

It appears that wav files play but none of the mp3 players work - I set up Amorak to use xine and it works well with wav files but claims it can not play mp3 files.


It's getting late, maybe tommorrow I can check into it more. I'll check back to see if anyone has anything helpful to offer.

I was in a similar situation and the bad news is: it fixed itself. I suspect something was whacked in the kernel; I did the recent on-line update that updated the kernel and after that the "Novell does not support" blather stopped. From there using alsaconf and alsamixergui worked very nicely, with no whining in /var/log/messages. Two problems remain, the alsamixer settings won't store (probably a permissions issue, if I can only guess what I need to change to fix that...) and my DVD/CD drive chokes and freezes the system with DMA enabled in any form or mode (bad, bad, bad for watching DVD's...).

alsactl store seems to store the settings and alsactl restore does its thing, too, but not until after the session's up and running. Oh, well...

The DMA thing is still a mystery.

MP3 is OK now

I don't understand why but it appears the libxine 1 must be replaced before the system (Amarok etc) will play mp3s.

I found that answe at http://susediary.blogspot.com/2006/0...-approach.html


I had a lot of trouble installing software with Yast, smart and just using rpm because of dependencies and conflicts - I am on dial-up so installing downloading software is really a pain in the butt, but once I followed the guide at the abopve site and used the new included "rug" everything was fixed and it is ok now. I suspect Novell wants you to register with them before getting all the updated files because after I registered everything fell into place an all was well again. I am not sure why, perhaps something with the government,perhaps they just want to know what systems are running Suse 10.1., but it definitely made a big difference once I used the "Online Update Configuartion" that registers with Novell.

I haven't check to see if I can run AVI files, but want to make sure that works as well. It all wasn't bad - just wished I had known ahead of time so I would not have wasted so much time experimenting.
