This is my first post here, as it is my first day using Linux. I'm about as green to Linux as it gets.
I recently purchased SuSE Professional 9.3 because it bragged up it's "Simple installation" and "Tech Support". The Setup was easy, although I had to configure the LCD and network card using "YaST".
But here's the problem, after all was said and done I can't get the sound configured on it. I'm running a IBM 600E 2645-5AU Thinkpad with a 400Mhz (upgraded from 366) processor. As I said before I installed SuSE Linux 9.3 Professional
I've logged into the YaST Control Center and clicked on "Sound Card Configuration" This opens another YaST Window That says:
The sound card
CS4610 SoundFusion Audio Acclerator
will be configured as the first sound card (snd-card-0)
Then gives the choice of setups- Quick Automatic setup
More detailed installation of sound cards
It really dosen't matter which I choose because it always says this after I click "next"
It seems you have a Thinkpad 600E laptop
On this laptop, the CS4236 Driver should be used
although the CS46xx chip is detected.
Attempt to probe the configuration of CS4236 Driver?
Whether I click yes or no it says:
An error occured during the installation of:
CS4610 SoundFusion Audio Accelerator
The Kernel module snd-cs46xx for sound support
could not be loaded. This can be caused be incorrect
module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
The wonderfully helpful SuSE Tech simply said. "Oh, your sound probably isn't supported." But after looking searching for awhile I've found that this seems to be a pretty common problem. (That's also how I found this site)
And my sound can be supported. I just need someone who knows how.
I'm very new to this. If you could help please be patient with my ignorance, we all have to start somewhere
