Suse 9.1 Sound Issue

Problem with my sound. I can get it to work by changing the options of my sound card through Yast and diasbling the support for DXS Channels, then running alsaconf at the CLI as root. The problem is when I reboot my system, the sound stops working until I repeat the above process. Seems as though either something is not getting saved, or something at boot is not pointing at what was changed by "fixing" the sound the last time I was logged in.

I am using a VIA 8235 on-board soound on a Gigabyte MoBo.

Any ideas?

You may try following:
dxs support is disabled with the option dxs_support=2
Take a look on your /etc/modprobe.conf

look for an entry like snd_via82xx or snd-via82xx
If not thre you have to add in your /etc/modprobe.conf
options snd-via82xx dxs_support=2

If there make sure that dxs_support=2 is passed as parameter to the module.
Be aware that a # infront of the options keyword outcomments the line, means
the options line has no effect.
If you find an entry via82xx (so without leading snd- or snd_) then it's relted to the OSS
and not ALSA driver.

Just one remark: This helped to fix the sound problem on one Mobo.
There is absolutely no garantee that it will work in your case.

It doesn't seem to be there. Do I just put the string you mentioned at the bottom of the modprobe.comf file or is there a certain place it needs to go?


re-edited to add:

been playing around and searching for answers.

added the line you mentioned to the etc/modprobe.conf

options snd-via82xx dxs_support=2

but didn't work, so changed the - to a _ so it looks like

options snd_via82xx dxs_support=2

plus added the same line to etc/modprobe.conf local

and uninstalled the kde multimedia mixer as per a suggestion on another post.

Rebooted, and the sound works great so far!!

Thanks for all the help.
