I installed SUSE 9.1 personal today and the sound aint working right, i mean it shows in the hardware list or whatever but when i insert a Music CD i cant hear crap...... also if i go to the sound settings and do the Test sound, it works....after doing the test i can go play a linux game and i can hear it fine but the music cd still wont work...once i reboot and get back to the desktop sound wont work again unless i do the test sound thinggy....
if sound works when you test, it is probably an issue with ARTS in KDE. Go into the KDE Control Center, then into tsound configuration dialog. There is an option for what source ARTS uses, you probably want it set to ALSA. You can test the sound in there as well, if it works there, it will work globally in KDE.
KDE has its own sound subsystem, which is neat, but also sometimes frustrating.
If that doesn't work, there is always the alsaconf, alsamixer combo.
Stupid SUSE, suse starting to get in my nervs...it looks cool and all but fuck.....
I went to Control Center
-Sound and multimedia
The midi device sez Kamix qamix ALSA
i do the test and it plays fine but DAMN I CANT LISTEN TO MUSIC CDS ...WTF
also wtf is up with my screen???
i fix my screen using the built in thinggy that you can move the screen to the right/left etc etc and save it...when i boot its retarded again... i cant use my monitor buttons cuz if i do when i get on XP its all messed on >
How i get the screen to stay put!??
and waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassup with ma sound??? =/
this is frustating, i shoudnt never installled SUSE...i mean wtf i gotta get on XP to get online? ...........
It sounds like you haven't connected your cdrom drive to your soundcard!!
It's not Suse's fault
Your cdrom will play back in windows xp ok as xp by default reads the audio along the ide cable instead of a seperate audio cable!
Suse can also do this if instead of using kscd to play your cd use xmms - you will need to mount the drive first.
A suggestion if I may, RIP YOUR CD'S!!!!!!!!!. LoL. You have two choices with this audio, open up your box and wire it right, or you can open up Grip in Suse and rip whatever CD that you want to play, and believe me, a music library on a comp is a lot easier than CD by CD. And for not being able to get on the internet, please do tell? I had a smilar problem which was a quick fix with a driver. Keep us updated!!!!
to play a music cd in linux, you don't actually mount it, you just insert it into the drive. Programs like XMMS see it, and can play it fine from there.
This is rare of course, virtually anything else requires the drive mounted. If you had a cd full of mp3s, that would need mounted to be played...which you would do with something like "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom", or possibly "mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom" depending on your setup. I am pretty sure suse makes a /dev/cdrom symlink.
Every time I reboot I have to :
modprobe -r snd-cmipci
modprobe -v snd-cmipci
in order for it to work. I don't mind so much, but it is irritating. I leave my machine on a lot, but turn it off sometimes. I forget whether I have done that or not. Does anybody know why this is the case and what I should do OR how can I do this automatically when I boot?
