I’m not able to play any audio, my sound doesn’t work either
Are you using kde3? kde4? gnome? What version of openSUSE Linux ? 10.3? 11.0 ? 11.1 ?
Please test your sound by copying and pasting the following into a gnome terminal or a kde konsole:
speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twavyou should hear a female voice saying ‘FRONT LEFT’, ‘FRONT RIGHT’ five times. Check your mixer to ensure both PCM and Master volume are up to 95% (while testing, you can lower those levels to reduce distortion once you have sound). If that works, stop reading this post, and reply saying it works. In that case your problem is with the applications/codecs and not with the basic sound driver/os.
If that does not work, then please follow the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide:
SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE
pay note to the suggestion to install alsa-firmware.
If the troubleshooting guide does not work for you post here.
I’ll be on vacation for the next 2.5 weeks, so my replies will be sporadic. Sometimes fast. Sometimes days between replies.
