opensuse 11 with default audio drivers.

hi all
i reinstalled opensuse today
and suse see my audio card
sounds works until i play music of video
when i play a song the sound stop so many times
if i do nothing sometimes it will continue playing after 30 seconds
i geuss if i play 1 song it stop playing around 30 times

i heard from somebody that had the same problem that i should compile my kernel
but is there a more easy way ?
i am a linux newbie so can somebody tell me how i should start to fix the problem ??

We need to know:
a. what audio codec is in the song? and
b. what audio player are you using?
c. what openSUSE version are you using?
d. what desktop are you using? ie gnome? kde3? kde4?

using opensuse 11 with kde 3.5
and i have this problem to every media player
vcl, amarok, audacious

with music i use only mp3

if the sound stops every sound will then not work
also flash sounds will stop from websites

ok, please tell us what version of these apps you are playing. You can do that by typing the following and posting the output here:
rpm -q vlc
rpm -qa | grep amarok
rpm -qa | grep xine
rpm -qa | grep ffmpeg
rpm -q mad
rpm -q audaciousalso, can you tell us more about your sound hardware/software configuration? To provide more information, with your PC connected to the internet copy and paste the following into a gnome-terminal or konsole:

wget && su -c 'bash ./tsalsa' 

when prompted for a password please enter your root password. Please try to accurately answer the question on the number of plugs/jacks on your PC (for example my PC has 3 i/o plugs/jacks). When the script completes it will pass you a URL. Please post that URL here.

Also, to find out what audio drivers (and some other necessary info) please copy and paste the following into a gnome-terminal or konsole and post the output here.rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
uname -a
cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound

I’m hoping there will be a hint from the information above, as to what your sound problem might be (although its possible other information, such as dmesg output, may be necessary).

package mad is not installed

tsalsa.txt - (beta)
From the website is only 1 thing wrong i dont have Surround just 2 speakers left and right.

i hope you can see my problem

I do not see the output of “rpm -qa | grep ffmpeg”. … What happened there?

But I see you have adopted a videolan package approach, as those apps are packaged by either SuSE-GmbH or videolan.

I do not use videlan packaged apps, as in my experience they have caused me more problems than their packman packaged equivalents. Plus I have found the packman rpm packagers are more responsive to solving reported problems than the videolan packagers.

If it were me, I would replace vlc, amarok, amarok-yauap, amarok-libvisual, and xine-lib with their packman equivalents.

If you decide you prefer videolan packaged apps (and some users do) then I can not help. Since I do not use videolan packaged apps, and since I do not have this problem, for all I know, this problem could be because of a videolan packaged app.

i don’t think it is the problem of what media player i use
they all have the same problem
i guess it is the problem of my hardware of drivers ?
yesterday i check it again i play a song (mp3)
it looks like the media player pause the song for 15 seconds
and later it continue playing

it looks a little bit like when your computer is overloaded and you play a song
it looks like that
