AFTER you get your sound working again, if this happens, try to restart the alsa sound driver with:
su -c 'rcalsasound restart'
When users state they re-install the sound driver it always leaves me with a bit of trepidation, for if one’s repositories are not setup conservatively one can end up with all sorts of weird drivers …
Can you show us what you got (with the sound not working) ?
Please provide the information suggested to be provided in the 2nd half of our multimedia stickie: Welcome to multimedia sub-area
… I’ll quote this for you to make it easier:
please post in this “multimedia” sub-forum, providing in your post the following information:
and select the SHARE/UPLOAD option and after the script finishes it will give you a URL to pass to the support personnel. Please post here the output URL/website-address that gives. Just the URL/website-address. 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).
Note if for some reason that gives you no website/url/address then run it with the no-upload option:
and post the file /etc/alsa-info.txt it creates to Pastebin.com and press SUBMIT on that site and again post here the URL/website-address it provides.
… some clarification on running the script “alsa-info.sh” … when you run:
you should get something like this (if it asks for an update, select NO):
followed by this (select the SHARE/UPLOAD option):
followed by this (its quickest if you simply select ‘NO’ to seeing the output - you will see it on the web page) :
followed by this (where in RED is the URL).
Just post the URL you get (similar to the RED URL in my example, but yours will be different).
Again, if you can not get that, then run this with the no upload option:
which will create the file /tmp/alsa-info.txt. Copy that file and paste it on [Pastebin.com](http://pastebin.com) and press submit. That will give you a URL address. Please post that URL here.
Also provide the following:
- 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

Note I am on vacation in Asia (1/3 of the world away from where I live) with random to no internet access, so I may be VERY slow in replying. … Sorry 'bout that.
