Suse 9.2 Audio Driver and Video Driver Woes
 
Hi,

I am using an Intel d915pbl motherboard with 3.4ghz 512ddr2, 80 gig Seagate drive, with Suse 9.2 installed.

In addition to the sound problems i am having having problems getting the latest and greatest ati driver installed. I need the latest driver installed because i need to get 3d acceleration installed and that the current driver says that 3d acceleration isnt allowed, so i tired downloading the x org driver.

I have an ATI X600 pci express video card, and i cant seem to get the driver installed correctly, even though it is a stright forward process. It uses and rpm which is easy enough, or i thought!

Everytime i think its installed correctly i reboot, and when i get back in, the GUI doesnt load, nor can i get it to load.

So i end up installing Suse everytime which after the 3rd time is a little frustrating! Any and all help is appreciated since i am new.

Here is my sound problem also, with the command lines or whatever you call them, i am not the only one having this problem, and it seems to be a rather large problem with any user of the d9## series chipsets by intel since it has the intel HD audio. I have seen someone else with my exact error and still no response and that was from anther forum.

If i knew how to install ALSA i would.

Any help is appreciated as I am getting quite frustrated at the moment, just like everytime i ever try to use linux. Speaking of which i first tried mandrake 8.0 and i had to wait 2 years for support for my old computers sound card to be found. I was happy, but then my hard drive crashed so now i have a new one but anyways.

Here is the stuff from the 1.5beta intel audio driver.

Thanks for any help, and will post back if more info is needed!

ALSA is part of the 2.6 kernel, so if you compile your own, you should be able to compile the driver directly into the kernel. I can't for certain that your card is supported (searching for the number gave few results) but I'm pretty sure all Intel sound cards have open source drivers in ALSA (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).
