    Default No sound in opensuse 11.2 X86_64

    Hi,

    Sound card is a XONAR DX PCI 4

    When I installed Opensuse 11.2 I had sound working out of the box; the only problem was that the flash plugin did not work in firefox: no sound and some time locks ==> needed to kill firefox

    I entered in Yast sound and received an error message "Could not load kernel module for sound support error.
    It may be cause by improper module parameters, such as
    improper IO or IRQ values."

    Thereafter no more sound

    Here the tests that I ran:
    uname -a
    Linux hpprol 2.6.31.5-0.1-xen #1 SMP 2009-10-26 15:49:03 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I had also a look at alsa site
    Matrix:Module-virtuoso - AlsaProject
    but this seems not valid for opensuse 11.2


    Any hint?

    Try moving your /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf file to /home/username/backups/50-sound.conf,
    then go to YaST > Hardware > Sound and reset up the sound card.

    I'm not used to the mixer for this sound card. Are you happy with the mixer being muted? I think the simple mixer control's function is to mix the mic ... but I'm not so sure about the analog input monitor's function.

    Thanks for your answer.

    I moved the 50-sound.conf to a backup place and tried to reconfigure the sound via YAST without success:Error message is

    "The kernel module snd-oxygen for sound support could not be loaded this can be caused by incorrect module parameters, such as
    including invalid IO or IRQ parameter." Only option thereafter is cancel

    I tried it also after a reboot, or in cli but every time I received the same error message.

    If I take in yast-->sound-->edit and option "advance setup with possibility to change option" I receive the message
    "There are no options for this module"
    If I continue I receive the above error

    If I try alsaconf it seems not able to find the card "No supported PnP or PCI card found"

    Regards
    Philippe

    Do not use alsaconf. Its been depreciated for 11.2 ... alsaconf creates an /etc/modprobe.d/sound file and that file is no longer in use. Instead the file in use is the /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf.

    Hmmmmmm ... don't waste your time any more on this. If you can afford to wait for a few days or so, then you can likely get help/fix from an alsa dev.

    Do this by writing a bug report on openSUSE-11.2 component sound. There is guidance here for how to do that: Submitting Bug Reports - openSUSE Attach to that bug report the output of running this diagnotic script as specified below:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh --no-upload
    that will put the file "alsa-info.txt" in /tmp. Attach that file to the bug report.

    By writing a bug report, you get the immediate attention of the Novell/SuSE-GmbH sound packager who is also an alsa developer. If anyone can solve your sound problem, he can. And if he ends up fixing alsa, he is very good at sending the fix upstream, which means all Linux distribution will benefit.

    Hi oldpcu

    thanks for your advice, I have created Bug #557591 for this problem.

    I had also a look in alsa site ( search on Xonar) and found this problem
    Xonar EEPROM Failure - AlsaProject

    There is a correction program and I'll try to generate a corrective CD. I hope that I should not go in deeper problem
