Not to sound blugurent... But can you provide us with a little more info, version of alsa, Opensuse 11(what tech, 1386, 1686, x86-64?).

you also specified you have AC'97 audio, but what is youre audio chipset, realtek, WM-com, Broadlink Audio?

also, frequency, type of audio playback, how long it takes before audio cuts.

Thats fine, we have all been there.

Now im not going to lie, i have no experience with suse, never used it. but with dealing with linux in general.. thats a different case.

now.. Do you know how to access Konsole?, if so do so now.

i need you to see if youre system uses APT method of installing and maintaining Packages. otherwise we will have to try the Yum or Git route...

to do this, open Konsole(usually located under "The Big K">System>Konsole)

Then begin by typing fakeroot apt-get update, if it complains it does not have anything named "apt-get" we will have to try the next.

otherwise post back youre results here.

-- if "apt-get" was not found on youre system, start by typing, fakeroot yum update
-- if it reports "cannot find yum" or similiar. just report back here, otherwise copy the -- what it says back here.

--

Once this is all said and done, we will go about re-installing alsa to see if it was corrupted during install and install oss to test to see if we can replicate this in OSS also.

fakeroot is an unknow command
and apt-get is not insstalled
is it not possible with yast2 ?
