Today I decided to reinstall OpenSUSE 11 AMD-64. This time I deselected Amarok from the install as I never use it. I no longer have any sound in OpenSUSE.
Yast Detects the card fine but I get the following error in kcontrol:
Unable to start the sound server to retrieve possible sound I/O methods. Only automatic detection will be available.
However the autodetection does nothing and no sound is on the system, so I guess that when I unchecked Amarok before installing (DVD Version) it must have removed another package.
What do I need to reinstall to get sound back, I don’t need to have the whole of Amarok do I?
Update: I still have sound in other applications such as Flash. So I’m guessing this only affects KDE Apps, however I have no mixer either to turn the volume up.
Update 2: I have installed kmixer and I can change volumes again. Just No KDE Sounds.
