Sound Problems!

Hi, I am running openSUSE 11.1 on a OLD Dell OptiPlex GX1. It says that the sound card is configured, but it is not. Can you help me?!

SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

It still does not work!

Can you tell us anything you know about what hardware you have, what has happened, what you see in Yast - Hardware - Sound, what was the result of all the troubleshooting.

Ensure you moved both master and PCM volume controls up in your mixer to 95% when testing sound. After you have confirmed basic sound you can move those down to a lower level to remove distortion.

Please note that to determine if you have sound, please copy and paste the following speaker-test into a Gnome terminal or a kde konsole: speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twavYou should hear a female voice saying ‘FRONT LEFT’, ‘FRONT RIGHT’ five times.

If you have no success with the audio troubleshooting guide, then I will need more information if I am to make a recommendation … So can you provide more very detailed information so a good recommendation can be given? You can do that, with your PC connected to the internet, by opening a gnome-terminal or a kde konsole and typing:
that will run a diagnostic script and post the output to a web site on the Internet. It will give you the URL of the web site. Please post that URL here. Just the URL. It may be that you need to run that script twice with root permissions.

Also, please copy and paste the following commands one line at a time into a gnome-terminal or a konsole and post here the output: rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
uname -a
cat /etc/modprobe.d/soundWe also need that output.

Never Mind! I got it fixed! Yay Me! lol!lol!lol!lol!
