Hmm... this won't work for me. I have an Audigy 2 (not the ZS version).
When I do the konsole thing, it says this:

The kernel module snd-emu10k1 for sound support
could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect
module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.

I tried to change settings in Yast itself, but it won't work.
Does anyone know how I can fix this?

OK, it now is installed and shows "Running"... I just had to reboot.
I removed it, typed yast sound add, everything went fine.
Still no sound. kdemultimedia3-mixer isn't installed and never has been.
Test won't work, XMMS won't work.
Any ideas?

I run SUSE 9.1 Personal by the way.

Another solution

Another thing you might try:

I performed all of the above, but still no sound. Here's what I ultimately did, extending the advice given above:

1. As advised, go to Yast -> Hardware -> Sound and DELETE your sound card. Click Finish.

2. Fire up a Konsole, and type su [then type password]
3. type yast2 sound add
4. type alsa [then hit TAB a few times] should see a bunch of alsa programs available, among which should be alsaconf.
5. Run alsaconf ....that seemed to do the trick for me, as alsa wasn't configured at all. Nubbie me. ^^

Hope this supplements the material above, even if it is targeted at n00bs.

Cool More thoughts...

Something else I had to do:

Control Center - Sound System - Hardware tab - audio device should be Open Sound System

Before I set the device to Open Sound System, I could only hear AUDIO CDs but no regular sounds (including mp3).

Very bad news. If it is nFORCE i have heard the drivers are for 2.4 only, new OS's have problems (2.6).
