    Default sound card install, will not work.

    Hi all,

    I installed a generic soundcard, to replace my failed onboard sound.

    I disabled the onboard sound from the BIOS.

    Now I got this error in YAST->Hardware->Sound



    How can I fix this?

    The drivers from the onboard sound is still here too. Should I just delete them?


    Thanks

    Please follow the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide:
    SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

    In particular, install alsa-firmware, and reboot your PC, and test your sound. Check your mixer while your sound test is playing. I recommend you copy and paste this into an xterm/konsole to test your sound:
    speaker-test -c2 -Ddefault -l5 -twav

    If you mean the alsa drivers, then definitely not. Or are you referring to some other custom driver that you installed?

    I too can not get any sound with my new install of OpenSuse 11.0. My settings can be found at general pastebin - bernie - post number 1063213 .

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advanced,

    Jasonbrant, your mixer is setup wrong.

    Take a look here for guidance:
