hm, very vague, but try running alsaconf as root. then use alsamixer to set the levels, then alsactl store to save them. then, if you are using kde, you need to set up its sound crap, with the control center. you might try these and if nothing works, post your lspci and lsmod.

Suse 10 and lack of sound


Saw your reply to RedSamurai and wished to thank you as it solved my problem. I had updated to Suse 10 but there was no sound and could not access a mixer that worked. I was almost going to report a bug in Kmixer. All I had to do was run alsaconf and the rest was automatic. I sound test was positive and when I then accessed kmixer it was fully configured.

Thanks again.
