    Default No sound with flash or gstreamer on opensSUSE 11.1 and gnome

    I all of the sudden lost all sound when using banshee and flash. The mplayer-plugin and firefox works however.

    Lately I have been having problems like this periodically. Can anyone recommend a stable repository setup to me?

    Code:
    andri@virgil:~$ zypper ve
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Dependencies of all installed packages are satisfied.
    I have tried to have all the gstreamer package come from packman

    Code:
     rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' gstreamer-0_10*

    Hello,

    I have had good luck with just the packman repo (+livdvdcss from the vlan repo). Banshee actually plays formats I was unable to get it to play in any previous release.

    Be sure to add "export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1" to the penultimate line of /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/noarch/npviewer.

    Have fun!

    Ok, it seems that solution was a little bit less than dignifying. Although running alsamixer from the terminal showed no PCM bar I could access it from Yast2/Sound. For some reason it was set to zero. After I increased it I got the sound back. I guess it is borderline embarrassing.

    But does that mean I'm not using alsa after all?

    Stable repos setup?

    Yes, only OSS, Non-OSS, Update and Packman. Just those 4. No others None.
