My Suse 10.3 install on my all Apple, G4, Digital Audio Mac went smoothly except I have no audio. I don’t think my video works either, but I’ve concentrated on the audio for the past few days. Knowing little about getting the audio going I checked the forums/etc and this is what I have so far.
My initial desktop had a normal volume icon, but my tests with the Yast control sound showed no sound when tested. My exploration of the forums said to try to run the Alsaconf script. I did and got no sound still, but now the volume control had a red X through it. I also went to the Yast config tool and tried to configure my sound (my G4 has onboard sound and is termed Powermac Tumbler), but I got an error message using the normal configuration setting which read “The kernel module snd-powermac support could not be loaded… invalid IO or IRQ parameters”.
I discovered SDB and the page SDB:Audio Troubleshooting. I executed the two scripts and the results are: Alsa info: 1050185 tsals: au5Pvd4E1 stored on the pastebin.ca server.
My Alsa packages installed are alsa (1.0.14-31.2) alsa-utils (1.0.14-27) and alsa-firmware (1.0.14-24)
No pulse packages installed according to rpm.
I wanted to update the alsa packages, but all the sources cited were for i386, i586, and 64bit Intel.
BTW, my 0.10 gstreamer directory is full of .ko files. I could be missing one, but I wouldn’t know how to figure that out.
I’m trying to fix this myself, but I’m over my head here and would appreciate any help I could get. I hope I have enough info above and that I’ve posted my message in the correct forum.
