    Unhappy gstreamer problem...

    hi,

    i may have post this issue in the wrong place. i think perhaps it is better here...
    GStreamer plugins or devices... - openSUSE Forums

    i am getting errors about gstreamer plugins not installed but i do show that some are.

    please advise.

    this issue stems from an audio problem on an ibook g4 ppc.

    i follow the procedure here...
    SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

    i get sound at the end of step 2 however i still get the gstreamer error and when i reboot the changes made by following the directions on the audiotroubleshooting page seem to be lost.

    I know nothing about the gstreamer errors, but re: keeping your sound settings, try the following.... Set up your sound levels such that your sound works, then in a gnome-terminal or konsole copy and paste:
    su -c 'alsactl store'

    and see if that saves your settings.

    Thumbs up Re: gstreamer problem...

    "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" does function after i run alsaconf.

    "su -c 'alsactl store'" is not saving the new settings after reboot.

    also i added the user id to the audio group in the user admin panel. no reason to doubt that this is key to getting audio to work too.

    at least i have uncovered some more subtle problems i should post in another thread.

    OK, ... another possibility is to reboot your PC, and test your audio with (but do NOT run alsaconf):
    speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav
    if that gives no sound, then run:
    su -c 'rcalsasound restart'
    and again test your sound with
    speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

    if that works, then its a simple matter of adding "rcalsasound restart" (no quotes) to your /etc/init.d/boot.local file (or something like that).

    I've read of users who use the ndiswrapper for their wireless experiencing this sort of problem.
