Sound In SuSE Not Working


During the installation, I could not get my sound card to work. I am in SuSE now, and it still does not work. I have tried using Kmix, yet it says it can't find a mixer. I have alsamixer installed, though it says when I try to use it:

Quote:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: Permission denied
It also says when I try to configure my card in YaST:

Quote:
An error occured during the installation of

M5451 PCI AC-Link Controller Audio Device

The kernel module snd-ali5451 for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
Anybody have the same trouble as me?

UPDATE: I fixed it. It seems that I had to specify the device name in the control panel to force it to use only that device, then after that it configured fine.
