Angry Suse Via'Ac97 no sound

I have a Via'Ac97 on my comp and Suse recognizes it but i get no sound. There are other Via to choose from but wheni try to add another soundcard i get an error. Is it because i only have one soundcard. is ti safe to delete the old one to another Via selection.

what is Alsa and Oss? I'm really new to Suse, only used linux before.

I also had no sound. So, in the interests of being helpful, I clicked on the SuSE menu (the green circle with lightning), Administration, YAST2 Modules, Hardware, Sound and configured the card using automatic setup. I now have sound.

Have you tried this?

Surely you mean "new to linux having onlu used SuSE"? SuSE is a distribution of Linux - a modified version, if you like. I am new to SuSE and considering get hold of version 9 when it's out.

Welcome to LQ.
