no sound on acer laptop


Hi,
I have installed a new suse linux os 10.1 (Linux 2.6.16.13-4smp i686) on my Acer Aspire 5100. The mixer can however not be found so there is no sound. the vendor for the sond product on the system is realtek.
I am a first time user of linux and have no idea as to how to proceed. i tried downloading some sound drivers on the net but do not even know how to install it. please help.

And how do i enable 3D support on it.

Try configuring the audio card for alsa.
There should be a program like alsaconf (/usr/sin/alsaconf maybe)
After configuring the card, store the configuration (alsactl store)
And user alsamixer to adjust mixer levels.

If the alsa-suit is not there, try to reinstall the alsa-package in suse.
In case they have changed the names, reordered the world, or whatever Suse tought it suits... you better ask to Suse-users.

On an ACER you may need to plug a pair of headphones to listen to the sound.
