Thread: 11.1 "forgets" sound-configuration

    Default 11.1 "forgets" sound-configuration

    This is driving me crazy since I can't figure out why I get this behavior.

    I recently (read: two days ago) got myself a new computer and just installed my old boot-disk into the new system, and booted. Most things works exactly as it should, after some reconfiguration (network-card and video-card the only culprits apart from sound).

    Sound is more problematic though...when I boot and login to KDE (4.3.1), the sound is so low it's barely audible even the volume turned to the max - both on the speaker systems and in kmix. I first thought (even if somewhat far-fatched) it may be something odd in KDE that caused it, but I get the same behavor in IceWM.

    The sound-card works though. I can get good sound if I do the following:

    1. Start yast->sound
    2. Remove the soundcard. It is automatically re-added but unconfigured.
    3. I configure it. The test sound work fine, and with the volume I want.
    4. I save the new configuration.

    From this point on, audio works. The only problem is that I have to go through that procedure every time I login. It's as if the yast-settings are either not saved even though it says it's saved OR that it's not read in properly when logging in.

    The card in question is a Intel 82801G (ICH7 family) hi-def audio controller, using the snd-hda-intel driver on 64-bit openSuse 11.1, using kernel

    Any idea of what the problem may be and how to solve it?

    Nevermind. I found the solution.

    I logged into IceWm, did the reconfigure sound-card routine.
    After that, I removed .kde4/share/config/phonondevicesrc
    as well as .kde4/share/config/kmix*

    I had done all except removing the kmix-rc files before, so apparently I needed to start from a clean slate as well or things got screwed up.
