Need Help Interpreting/Fixing Youtube Error.

I am trying to get sound working from youtube, and opened firefox from konsole to see anything from the output. Unfortunately, I don’t understand the output, so I don’t know what to do.

ALSA lib pcm.c:2211:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default                                                    
ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1433:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card                                                   
ALSA lib confmisc.c:768:(parse_card) cannot find card '0'                                                          
ALSA lib conf.c:4154:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib confmisc.c:392:(snd_func_concat) error evaluating strings                                                 
ALSA lib conf.c:4154:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_concat returned error: No such file or directory     
ALSA lib confmisc.c:1251:(snd_func_refer) error evaluating name                                                    
ALSA lib conf.c:4154:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_refer returned error: No such file or directory      
ALSA lib conf.c:4633:(snd_config_expand) Evaluate error: No such file or directory    

This is ALL the output, after examination, as the above text was really all that it was, repeating and repeating.

A bit more info from me:

me@mybox:~> cat /proc/asound/cards
 1 [ICH5           ]: ICH4 - Intel ICH5
                      Intel ICH5 with AD1980 at irq 17
 2 [Audigy         ]: Audigy - SB Audigy 1 [SB0092]
                      SB Audigy 1 [SB0092] (rev.3, serial:0x531102) at 0xdf20, irq 19

My version of OpenSUSE is 11.2.

Please point me in the right direction.

Start by following some of the diagnostic information in this guide:

Post back if you’re still having troubles (with any relevant info as suggested or requested within at that guide).


I was able to get my sound working on all fronts with the guide’s help. Thanks.

P.S. – Get rid of that “puzzled penguin” thing, cuz it’s no longer relevant. heh-heh.

Sorry g00gler, but you will have to do better than that to stop being a Puzzled Penguin. lol!

First off, welcome to the openSUSE forums if it has not been said before. The Puzzled Penguin will stick with you until your message posting hits 50. Here are the rest of the message count milestones.

Puzzled Penguin 0
Student Penguin 50
Explorer Penguin 100
Busy Penguin 250
Parent Penguin 500
Wise Penguin 1000
Omniscient Penguin 2000

While there may not be a direct correlation between your ability to write many forum messages and the ability to help other openSUSE users just because of your message count is high, it does indicate some sort of extra effort may be going on.

Hang in there if a high message count and corresponding moniker is important to you.

Thank You,

Well done.
Give yourself a pat on the back at least. Stick around and you’ll soon be a guru :slight_smile:
