Multiple "problems"

Okay so its been a while since i’ve used linux and am not so pro with the console anymore, and i have 2 main problems at the moment.

  1. I cannot get my sound to work, at all. Heres my system specs.

CPU: AMD Athalon 64 x2 3800+
Ram: 4GB

I have onboard sound, and all the other drivers for my MOBO are working, just the audio driver.

and 2, Isnt so much a problem as it is me being mildly off with fixing things lately, but i just cannot seem to get the Flash plugin for Firefox to work. at all.

any input on what to do/try would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

Please try working your way through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

To determine if you have sound, please copy and paste the following speaker-test 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.

If you have no success with the audio troubleshooting guide, and assuming you are trying openSUSE-11.1, then I will need more information if I am to make a recommendation … So can you provide more very detailed information so a good recommendation can be given? You can do that, with your laptop connected to the internet, by opening a gnome-terminal or a kde konsole and typing:
that will run a diagnostic script and post the output to a web site on the Internet. It will give you the URL of the web site. Please post that URL here. It may be that you need to run that script with root permissions. Please note that I need that output to understand better your PC’s configuration.

Also, please copy and paste the following commands one line at a time into a gnome-terminal or a konsole and post here the output: rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
uname -a
cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound

When i finished the installation I was without sound too (64bit version).

As root from a console i used the command “alsaconf” and it fixed all my problems.

Maybe it can help you too.

Bye, bye.
