No sound

I am without sound in New PC

new-host:/home/sergio # head -n 1 /proc/asound/card0/codec*
Codec: Realtek ALC887-VD

But not this “Realtek” does not appear when I try to configure the sound card whit YaST
Please, thanks for your help.

I tried to install the Realtek driver, but there is an error with alsa

Please, what should I do?

Hi sergelli

Please provide the chipset details for your hardware eg using hwinfo

/usr/sbin/hwinfo --sound

Did you read the audio_troubleshooting guide yet? Especially the section about running the ALSA diagnostic script, as that will yield definitive information needed to help progress this issue. Post the URL that it provides here so others can then review the uploaded content.

Thanks Ferrari, I will see audio_troubleshooting guide.

Follow the hwinfo

And now? What do I do?

Your sound card is not that unusual and is normally supported by default – I also have the thing here on an Asus motherboard.
Have you checked YaST → Hardware → Sound?
Is the sound card detected and initialised?

  • Is Pulse Audio support enabled?
  • Always press ‘OK’ in YaST to ensure that the system configuration has been written.
  • Does it play the test sound included with YaST?

We’re still waiting on the diagnostic output that I requested back in post #2. Refer to the troubleshooting guide I linked to…

The diagnostic script is the one created by user wishie from IRC #alsa. For users with 1.0.17 of alsa or newer, it is included with alsa. To run, copy and past the line below with root permissions:
Often the first time you run this script, it will note there is an update available, and ask if you wish to update. Select YES. If you are running this in a terminal/konsole with root permissions, the script will update. Then run the script a second time. When it is complete, it will pass you a URL. Take a look at the contents of the URL, as it passes to you useful information. Also keep a record of the URL provided by the script as it can come in useful for passing to others who are trying to assist you (on one of the forums, or on an IRC channel). Then go to the next step of this guide.

Wow…it’s very long
How to send this file ?

You didn’t read the instructions. It can be run so that it uploads the file to an online server and generates a URL that you post here. Then we can review it online.
