Thread: SB Audigy 2 ZS No Sound

  1. #1

    Question SB Audigy 2 ZS No Sound

    I'm stuck here. I've looked around in the forums and haven't been able to get my sound card working. I've deleted, and added the card back, ran rcalsasound restart after every change I've made. I can hear a clicking sound after running rcalsasound restart but then when I go to play a test sound...nothing. Pretty frustrating when I had no issues with 10.3 out of the box.

    Forgot to mention that I'm using the 64bit version of Opensuse 11

    I don't have the same card and 32bit but, I have an audigy 4. When I installed 11.0 I had no sound either. What I had to do was add myself to audio and select audigy analog output in kmix and it works now. Hope this helps.

    I just want to make sure what you meant by selecing audigy analog output in kmix? Is this a channel that you are adding called Analog Mix, or is it something else that I'm not seeing. I've added myself to the Audio group.

    Yes Analog mix, Enable it and turn the slider up.

    Still nothing. I've deleted the card and added it back, set it to Analog Mix in KMix and still no sounds. Rebooted in XP just to make sure I'm not going mad and I have sound.

    I'm hoping something will turn up as to why the soundcard doesn't work. I've enabled my onboard sound and have no issues with it. I'm using an Asus A8N-E motherboard and Yast picked it up right away. If anyone else has any insight as to why the Audigy 2 card won't work I would be glad to hear

    The Audigy 2 ZS should work. Its not on the Linux incompatibility list:
    Linux Audio incompatibility list
    and its noted as being supported by alsa:
    Alsa page on Module-emu10k1 which supports the Audigy 2

    Why not connect it up again, and work your way through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

    note
    (1) you likely need alsa-firmware installed.
    (2) you may also need to add your regular user to group "audio", and
    (3) finally, its possible the 11.0 pulse audio does not like your audigy.

    If you still have problem after working your way through the audio troubleshooting guide, please post here the output of:
    a. url(s) produced by running the two diagnostic scripts from the audio troubleshooting guide: Scripts_to_run_to_obtain_detailed_information ,
    b. output of:

    uname -a
    rpm -qa | grep alsa
    rpm -qa | grep pulse
    rpm -q libasound2
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound

    Same problem here, but on openSUSE 11.0 32 Bit. Also Audigy 2 ZS on an Asus A8N-E-Motherboard. Sound worked well on openSuse 10.3.

    SDB:Audio Troubleshooting didn't help.

    Here's the info for my configuration:

    Script 1
    Script 2

    Code:
    Tentakel:~/testscripts # uname -a
    Linux Tentakel 2.6.25.5-1.1-default #1 SMP 2008-06-07 01:55:22 +0200i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

    Tentakel:~/testscripts # rpm -q libasound2
    libasound2-1.0.16-39.1
    
    Tentakel:~/testscripts # cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    
    options snd slots=snd-emu10k1
    # hH_P.9jPiZAnlR97:SB Audigy 2 ZS (SB0350)
    alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
    Hope this information gives you a hint what's wrong....

    Thanks!
