issue of my sound card on Suse

Hello everyone,

I'm using Suse Linux on my laptop. I do listen to music sometimes . However, there's a problem regarding to my sound card. I dunno it does have to do with my sound card or OS because this problem doesn't occur when I use XP to listen to any music. The problem is I can only use the built-in speaker, whenever I plug in a headphone or whatever device (let's say sometimes I plug in a set of multimedia speakers) but there's no sound on that particular peripheral device but instead the music is keep on coming out from my built-in speaker even though I've plugged in the peripheral device correctly. is there anyway to make the song come out from a particular peripheral device instead of my built-in speaker? Hopefully, someone could help me. Thanks everyone in advance.

Hi htetnaing,
I had the same problem on my laptop with one of the previous versions of Suse.. As far as I remember I kept on playing around with KMix and alsamixer settings until I found a proper set.. It has definetely something to do with alsa server version. I don't have that problem after I installed OpenSuse11 ..and changed the laptop in the meantime
