sound troubles


Just installed Suse 9.2 today and the sound has never worked yet. I have integrated sound but the one I have been using is an actual sound card. I use KDE and played around a little with the control center in there, couldn't get anything to work. I've never used Suse before. It's automatically set it up when I used RH FC3. Any ideas?

If you need more info please ask, thanks in advance,

Shaun

Hi,

could do with knowing what sound card you're using, and a dump of what modules are loaded - from a console window, as root, issue 'lsmod' and post the output here.

it might also be worth double-checking your mixer settings - it's caught me out before!

Ok, I'm not sure what card it is, had it layin around and it's pretty old, but it might be Ensoniq AudioPCI, but I'm not sure, just got that off of the mixer window. Anyway, checked the mixer, everything's on and seems fine. Here's the output of lsmod:

Try running alsaconf as root.

Hey-

Ok, here's a new one...now window events and "Test Sound" in the KDE Control Center work but a CD playing in KsCD does not work at all. Neither do any radio streams from amaroK. I thought that was awful weird. The sound that does work works on "Auto-detect" or with "ALSA".

If you can think of anything else to get it to work fully, please tell!

Thanks,

Shaun

Ok, now I can play mp3s that I have on my CDs of my music collection (in the form of files not tracks), and I ran alsaconfig and configured that same Ensoniq card, and it worked great. However, I still cannot do CDs, which doesn't matter too much to me I guess, since I listen to pretty much all my music by mp3s and a mp3 player, but I can't do radio streams unless you have to do something more than just clicking on them to play them. I like radio streams.

That's the latest,

Shaun

Your CD player problem might be a result of a missing audio cable between your drive and the soundcard - this is a common problem, so have a browse through these forums for further advice there..

As for amaroK radio streams... i've had variable success with some of the streams. the latest amaroK (1.2.3, i think) seems to work well though. this shouldn't be a problem with your soundcard - if you can play mp3s etc using amaroK, then the streams should work, too.

You may want to try Yast->Hardware->Sound->Volume and check your volume levels. I've had crazy problems like that in the past and that fixed it.
