Sorry, I weren’t right. When I didn’t see any cards in yast, and selecting “play sample sound” didn’t do anything, and playing something in amarok didn’t give any sound, I thought it doesn’t work. But now I can hear system sounds and youtube, so i think it works. It even sends digital-in signal through line-out, just like in windows! (I thought it would be a nightmare to set something like this in opensuse)
But although it works, it is still strange I get no soundcards in yast. (Not in the Sound dialog, at least)
Just one more thing - my keyboard has two buttons for lounder/quieter sound. Although I press them and the small bar with percent sound strenght appears, it does not have any impact on sound volume. (KMix and youtube flash player bars have)
I have no soundcards under yast - sound but everything with the card works. Kmix to adjust volumes, Skype with front panel mic, record what you hear. So I don’t need a soundcard listed under Yast
About the keyboard this probably has something to do with the keyboard settings. For my keyboard, microsoft multimedia keyboard, I had to download keytouch from the packman repo. After running this I got all my multimedia keys working. Give it a try as it supports loads of different keyboards. If you get it working go under yast - system - system service (run level) and enable the keytouch-init daemon to start you configuration at startup.
