Hi, Im new to OpenSUSE and pretty much new to Linux in general. Ive got OS11 installed on my Gateway MX3225 laptop and overall it went very well. Im liking pretty much everything about OpenSUSE except Im having a few problems with some of my hardware. I dont get any sound and I cant change my screen resolution from 1024x768 to the 1280x768 that it is supposed to be at.
If anyone can help me get these small problems taken care of I would greatly appreciate it.
Apologies for not posting earlier. Your subject “Problems with my Gateway laptop with OS11” was not specific enough to garner my attention, and I missed your post. Next time I recommend you separate your post to specific issues, such as “No Sound with Gateway laptop with OS11” and a separate post on your graphic problems.
Reference your sound, please work your way through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide:
SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE
if after trying out the recommendations in that guide, you still do not have audio, then please copy and paste the following (one line at a time) into an xterm/konsole, and paste here the output:
rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
and also please run the following two diagnostic scripts, and paste here the URL that they will give you. You can run these scripts by copying and pasting (with your laptop connected to the internet) the following into an xterm/konsole:
wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
for the following, when prompted for a password, enter your root password, and type “NO” for any question that you do not understand:
su -c 'wget -O tsalsa wget http://home.cfl.rr.com/infofiles/tsalsa && bash tsalsa'
and then copy here the URLs that they will provide (one per each script).
Welcome to our forum, and thank you for participating.
