I have been using opensuse 11.1 with kde 4.2.3. Until this time, while kde was being loaded, I got an error notification at system tray(Is it called system tray like in windows? very right corner) saying you have a problem with your current audio driver, therefore we fall it back to Default drivers.Then it mutes my laptop’s sound(it also physically turn off the key on my laptop which is strange attitude, because at the mixer it is enabled but on my laptop it’s disabled, so laptop’s mute button is overwhelmed the mixers), but when I enable the key on my laptop I have the sound.
However, after the latest updates w/ zypper up, I have no sound anymore. I tried some methods (addind this line to the top of my below sound file : "options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 ")available in this forum but didn’t work. I’d be appreciate,if someone can help me. I have no idea about the sound in Linux, What do “alsa” and “pulse” stand for? Can you suggest me some website/article/ebook? Here is my info:
