Thread: You still have sound card issues with M6?

  1. #1

    Default You still have sound card issues with M6?

    Am I the only one still having sound card issues with M6?

    It is not loading at boot and it rolls back to PulseAudio in KDE.

    Sound issues are present since the first release of 11.2, but I was wondering if on M6 I am the only one left.

    I have ICH9 ADsomething, AD1298 I think, can't remember exactly, but I know I am not the only one using that type of in-board chip.

    tnx

    Sound works for me.

    Pull out a digital camera and take a pix of these error messages if you can not write them down. Its much easier that way.

    Anyway, ... in 11.1 there was a bug many user had with what could be this sort of error message, so it only IMHO shows the bug may have not been fixed.

    What sound issues? Just that error? Does sound work?

    Did you try some of the tests recommended in the audio troubleshooting guide?

    Did you run the diagnostic script from the audio troubleshooting guide?

    If you write a bug report, likely the 1st thing the openSUSE dev will do is ask you run the diagnostic script. SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

    Mine also rolls back to pulseaudio but sound seems to work OK. I also had
    this roll-back problem with 11.1.

    I've got M6 on three different machines and sound works on all - apart from
    the roll-back to pulseaudio on at least two of the three.

    So far I was just asking if I was alone with that problem, but I start to think it's time to run some diag and file a bug, maybe...

    I can take a screenshot, as it is inside KDE once it is loaded that after a few seconds I get that pop-up in the bottom right saying my audio failed to work or load and it's roll-backing to PulseAudio.

    I have no sound. I did run tests in Yast and nothing. I had sound in a very early release, maybe M1 or an Alpha, but since then, nothing.

    Time to work.

    tnx for confirming!

    Uninstall pulseaudio. That should do the job.

    If sound problems persist, consult one of old_cpu's posts on this matter.

    Default Re: You still have sound card issues with M6? Not on M7!!

    Ok so with M7, not installing pulseaudio from first installation of M7, sound works!

    All seems normal there.

    Kaffeine is still not ready and not playing most of the videos, but that's another story.

    Now I just need to find a way to get my sound pass through SPDIF and all will be great. That's the most complex thing in Linux according to me, cuz googling around never gives an answer on that, but that's my problem.
