In note this in your mixer:
Simple mixer control ‘Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack’,0
Capabilities: pswitch pswitch-joined
Playback channels: Mono
Mono: Playback [off]Since you have updated alsa, try this in both OFF and ON settings, running the speaker tests you were given in the previous thread.
What is the output of:
rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
Don’t forget to check your hardware on that PC … ie check the cables are connected to the appropriate jacks, … speakers plugged in, etc … If you have another operating system to test the hardware against, please do so to confirm the hardware is good.
I recall you asking about digital. Note IEC958 is digital.
I note in your mixer:
Simple mixer control ‘IEC958 Optical’,0
Front Left: Playback 0 [0%] -99999.99dB] Capture 0 [0%] -99999.99dB]
Front Right: Playback 0 [0%] -99999.99dB] Capture 0 [0%] -99999.99dB] Simple mixer control ‘IEC958 Optical Raw’,0
Front Left: Playback [on]
Front Right: Playback **[on]**What happens if you switch IEC958 OFF ? Or alternatively, what happens if you move up its playback to 95% ?
Anyway, I do not have your hardware, but it does read strange to me to switch a control ON, and then put its settings to 0% playback.
Here is an excerpt from the link you gave me for the snapshots:
Also it said the snapshots are for newer hardware my soundblaster is seven years old.
You should send 6 zypper commands to update your alsa (they are given below).
To send the zypper commands below, first open an xterm/konsole, and type “su” (no quotes) to obtain root permissions. Enter the root password when prompted. Then send the 6 zypper commands (in two groups of 3) given below that are specific to your openSUSE kernel version (and your SMP version). The three commands given in each case will:
* install a repository for alsa
* update your alsa
* remove the repository
