New SuSE install, sound not working


Just today I installed SuSE 9.1 personal. I have tried playing cds, but there is no sound produced. In YaST my soundcard shows up. My volume is turned up and my speakers are good and loud. I'm a bit of a noob to linux, so any help would be great, thanks.

Install aumix. Type aumix. Make sure pcm and master are turned up. Kmix(the default gui for kde) is a turd in most cases.

thanks, I'll give that a try tomorrow when I'm not so tired and groggy.
I'm assuming this aumix can be install using YaST like all other SuSE stuff?

If you still have trouble, try:

Code:
cd /dev
cat urandom > dsp
This should send random garbage to your sound card. If you can't hear it, then your card isn't configured properly. (driver, etc.)

Press ctrl+c to stop.

I should have come back before to say that I figured it out. Thoreau said to replace Kmix . It turned out its actually called kamix, so when I typed "kamix" it brought up a mixer box thingmy-bobber that had a mute checkbox turned on for the CD and the Master.

The easiest way to install software in SuSE is through YaST. I am using 9.1 and it had no problem fetching aumix for me from SuSE's ftp mirrors (using "install and remove software").

Of course, you may have figured that out.

(I have an ftp installed system. For those installing from CD/DVD, YaST will ask for the appropriate disk.)
