Lacking Audio

Guys,
I’m using opensuse 12.3. Seems that is something wrong with my audio devices or permissions. Below is the results of command “aplay -L” and root and as a normal user:

as root:

Well, I think is something with permissions or something like that. Any ideas?

Can you get it to work from the Yast sound card setup? Sometimes removing the driver and reelecting will work and there is also test sounds there to try

If there is any chance you have more than one audio device, your primary one may not be used by default. These days, many video cards have audio and may become the default device. Have a look at the blog I have on the subject along with other help and links:

Thank You,
