i am a new Linuxer since some weeks, openSUSE 11.1 x86_64, KDE 3.5.10 “release 21.11”.
I had only a little problem that system sounds didn’t work. Someone sent me here to read, told me perhaps to remove pulseaudio.
Ok i looked at SDB:AudioTroubleshooting here. i saw that i missed alsa-firmware so i added it and did the tests, configured sound file as it was explained.
Here was my configuration-file:
I did not succeed make working system sounds, so i removed pulseaudio with YaST (all modules with pulseaudio).
System sounds always didn’t work, so i updated all i found about alsa with the software manager (where you can choose remove, install or update).
After that i noticed that avidemux, audacity and XMMS didn’t work any more.
I tried things, don’t remember exactly what.
When i reinstalled pulseaudio, i finally found system sounds, nice, but all this work for these little noises :yawn:
xmms reworks also (don’t know why), but audacity freezes when i open an mp3, and my password manager “mono keePass.exe” crashes now. (before the manipulations hi workes perfectly)
Then i read in a thread here that someone advised to always “do a clean install”, so i suggest i did probably wrong when i updated some modules ?! I’m so stupid. :\
Now i have the following situation:
Either i activate system sounds, then xmms doesn’t work (message: can’t find sound device or sth. like that)
or i unable system sounds, then xmms works
In both cases, audacity and KeePass crashes.
I think my audio configuration file isn’t good neither:
(there is no model declared as explained in the Troubleshooting page step 5):
Can you give me some advice how to configure (to add model to) the sound file?
Can i do something to have a “cleaner” installation? (Perhaps “repair system” with my Suse-install DVD?)
As you see, now i have 3 sound services installed/run:
pulseaudio, esound and aRTs. Before i had only 2. This is probably not so good, isn’t it? Perhaps one is enough? Should i remove one ore 2 ?
I hope i am understandable, english is not my language. Thank you for reading me!
