    Welcome to openSUSE forums !!

    Please note we are almost all volunteers, with day jobs. So sometimes it can take a day or two before someone responds to a post.

    You may wish to brush up on some basic openSUSE Linux concepts: Concepts - openSUSE

    Reference your sound problem, you could try working your way through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide:
    SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

    Note, when testing if you have sound, please copy and paste the following speaker-test into a Gnome terminal or a kde konsole:

    speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

    Note Linux is case sensitive, and “D” is not the same as “d”. To stop the above test, while the konsole/xterm has the mouse focus, press <CTRL><C> on the keyboard. Note you should check your mixer settings (kmix if using KDE, and alsamixer if using Gnome) to ensure that PCM and Master Volume are set around 95%. Once you have basic sound established you can back off to lower volume levels. Note the test for surround sound is different.

    If that test yields errors (and its not uncommon to get errors there), try instead this more simple test:
    speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav
    You should hear a female voice saying 'FRONT LEFT', 'FRONT RIGHT' five times. Its quite common that one of those speaker tests will work and one will NOT work, so don't be distressed if that is the case. IF that test gives sound, stop now, post that the sound test gives sound, and we will look at other possible causes for your applications not giving you the sound you want (such as missing codecs, using the wrong packaged version ... etc ... ).

    Try those speaker-tests as both a regular user, and also with root permissions. If you have a headset, try with your headset plugged in, and also with your headset not plugged in (for speakers).

    Assuming no sound, can you provide more very detailed information so a good recommendation can be given? For openSUSE-11.1, you can do that, with your laptop connected to the internet, by opening a gnome-terminal or a kde konsole and twice copy and paste the following into that terminal/konsole
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh
    Run it the 1st time with root permissions. It will ask if you wish to do an update of the script. Select YES.

    Then run it again (as either a regular user or as root). This time it will diagnose your PC's hardware and software configuration for audio, and it will post its output on the Internet/web. It will give you the URL of the web site. Please post that URL here. JUST the URL.

    Also, please copy and paste the following commands one line at a time into a gnome-terminal or a konsole and post here the output:
    rpm -qa | grep alsa
    rpm -qa | grep pulse
    rpm -q libasound2
    uname -a
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    ... with that information I may be able to make a recommendation.

    Reference the graphic driver, do you have a GUI, or just text?

    You can tell what graphic driver your pc is trying to use by typing:
    Code:
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Note that:
    • vesa - the vesa driver. works on most graphic cards (nvidia, intel, ati), but is slow in performance. Comes with openSUSE.
    • nv - the open source (openGL) nividia graphic driver. Reasonable (average) performance in most cases. Comes with openSUSE.
    • nvidia - the proprietary nVidia driver. The best performance, but can be tempermental during kernel updates or xorg updates.

    Please advise if you have no graphical desktop.

    OK, ... then please, can you run the script I provided the command for and provide the output URL it gives. Also run the other commands and provide the output they give. The sooner you can do that, the sooner we can get your sound working.

    OK, you are using a very basic / minimal driver known as the frame buffer driver (fbdev). Its very basic.

    I recommend you reboot your PC, and when the green grub boot menu appears (where you select windoze, or openSUSE or openSUSE fail safe) select the openSUSE boot and press the "3" key (no quotes) to enter the value 3 in the options line. That will force a boot to run level 3, which is an text/ascii boot level.

    When you get to the login prompt, log in as a regular user and enter your password. Then type 'su' (no quotes) and enter the root password in order to get root permissions.

    Then backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (just to be safe) noting that Linux the characters are case sensitive. You can backup by typing:
    Code:
    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.mybackup
    Once you have the backup, then try to see if the openGL nvidia driver will work. I suspect it will not, but its worth trying. You can do this by typing:
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=nv
    and if that works, exit sax2. Note it is slow so do not rush it. Note that assumes your PC has only 1 graphic hardware device. Note the last four characters in that command are "zero equals nv".

    Then restart your pc by typing "shutdown -r now" and this time do NOT type 3.

    If that sax2 command does NOT work, instead try the VESA driver and type:
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
    and if that works, exit sax2. Note it is slow so do not rush it. Note that assumes your PC has only 1 graphic hardware device. Note the last four characters in that command are "zero equals vesa".

    Then restart your pc by typing "shutdown -r now" and this time do NOT type 3.

    Please advise if your PC has more than one graphic card.
