Help! Sound under OSS SUSE 10.0!


Recently I reported about silence on my PC... I managed to install (over the Internet) required drivers for my ThinkPad 600X (Crystal Sound from Cirrus Logic). Then I started ALSA. Now I have a sound... Both KDE and GNOME show me the volume control... BUT! The sound is permanently tehre, and it is terrible! Permanent electrical noice, so-to say...

Besides, GNOME starts now extremely slow!

Please! Can anybody help me in this case? I really need some hints how to make the sound card work, and not just produce some noice!

As additional information I can say, that "Volume Cntrol Preferences" window in GNOME shows somehow 2 cards - Sound Fusion CS46xx (Alsa Mixer) and Cirrus Logic CS4297A rev3 (OSS mixer). What does it mean? How can I get reed of one card?

Thanks in advance! I really think about going back to 9.1 or 9.3 To be honest, 10.0 left rather bad impression... :-(

SuSE10 is still in testing phase and I found it worse than 9.3 as well. Can you remember how sound worked in
SuSE 9.3? You need to check which ones are supported in kernel, and also in YaST. I suggest uninstalling ALL
soundcards in YaST, reboot, read which ones are being loaded as modules on booting. Then check YaST again. Then maybe experiment with all possibilities available but only using ONE sound card at a time
