hi to everyone…yesterday i have installed open suse at my desktop…well… after my first update i have no sound(firefox,music):(…what shall i do??:\
Sorry to hear about the audio problems. The SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE checklist have been a great guide in helping me with most of my sound concerns and I’m sure it can help you too.
Do you have sound anywhere at all from this desktop PC ?
Do you have sound anywhere at all from this desktop PC?

If you wish us to take a very detailed look at this in a hope of solving this problem, then please provide the information recommended to be provide from the second half of the multimedia stickie: Welcome to multimedia sub-area - openSUSE Forums , which is:
please post … providing in your post the following information:
- provide the URLs (of a summary webpage) that are created by running the diagnostic script noted here:
SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE - Script to run to obtain detailed information. On openSUSE-11.1 and newer that will ask you to run the script /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh and after the script finishes it will give you a URL to pass to the support personnel. Please post here the output URL. Just the URL. You may need to run that script twice (the first time with root permissions to update in the /usr/sbin directory, and the second time to get the URL).
- in a terminal, or xterm, or konsole, type: rpm -qa ‘alsa’ #and post output here
- in a terminal, or xterm, or konsole, type: rpm -qa ‘pulse’ #and post output here
- in a terminal, or xterm, or konsole, type: rpm -q libasound2 #and post output here
- in a terminal, or xterm, or konsole, type: uname -a #and post output here
- for openSUSE-11.1 or earlier, in a terminal, or xterm, or konsole, type: cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound #and post output here
- for openSUSE-11.2 or later, in a terminal, or xterm, or konsole, type: cat /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf #and post output here
my friend KohlInGA i have try the guide that you suggest me and i have progressed with this to the 4th or 5th step but in this steps the sound have came from far from my speakers and suddenly had disappear the icon of sound from my menu bar in the bottom
So you now have sound working?
If you are using KDE, the small sound icon comes from running the program (as a regular user) “kmix”. Its a mixer and it can be used to control the volume.
no i dont have any sound yet…
the output URL
rpm -qa ‘alsa’
rpm -qa ‘pulse’
rpm -q libasound2
Linux linux-e7f0 184.108.40.206-0.2-default #1 SMP 2010-03-16 21:25:39 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
that’s all my outputs
I note a 32-bit openSUSE-11.2 with the 220.127.116.11 kernel and 1.0.20/1.0.21 of alsa on a P5K-VM computer with an ALC883 hardware audio codec.
I looked at your mixer settings and there is an immediate, obvious problem:
Simple mixer control ‘PCM’,0
Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Playback 0 - 255
Front Left: Playback 0 **[0%] **-51.00dB]
Front Right: Playback 0 **[0%] **-51.00dB]The PCM volume is muted, and with the PCM volume muted there will be NO sound. You need to move up that PCM volume control to 90% or so and test.
Also, use a proper speaker test. Please try each of these speaker tests in a terminal (as a regular and if that fails in a terminal as root - in both cases with speakers and with headphones):
speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav
- second, try again:
speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav
speaker-test -c2 -D hw:0,0 -t wav -l3
- fourth, this next command has a volume meter at the bottom of its output with a changing number of #'s and %'s to show volume levels so run this command and tell me if the number of #'s and %'s are changing:
aplay -vv /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_*
- fifth: and also:
aplay -vv /usr/share/sounds/alsa/test.wav
Do any of those give an indication of sound ?
finally i made it…thank you for your help dude the problem fixed with test…lol!
after the test in the console i went in YaST==>hardware==>sound
then i ckick other==>volume and move up the cursor in PCM to 90
and on side from 0 to 45
Great ! Congratulations !
Now that you have sound working, please take a read of this recommendation/guide: Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums
