I have a USB sound recording device and I use it as my main Sound output for Windows and will use it for OpenSuSE Linux:
The problem is, I can’t add the device through the “Sound” in YAST.
Here is the following method I use:
under Hardware 1. Clicked Add
to add device 1. Chose Tascam
and US122/224/428 1. Chose Quick Automatic Setup
Then notification comes up if I want to permanently remove existing sound cards, I choose NO
(this is the built in sound card of the mother board) 1. Then Hardware setup shows as error with the following message, "The Kernel Module snd-usx2y for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
I am thinking that it failed because I’m using an internal sound card instaler instead of a USB device installer.
Is there a Manual solution to this? Instead of using the Quick Automatic Setup on step 5?
When I click Hardware Information in YAST, the device is being listed on the USB devices.
yes, there are 3 options, the Quick Automatic, Normal, and Advanced. The Quick and Normal did not work, unfortunately. I’m curious with the Advanced setup as it does allow you to enter commands… I just don’t know what commands should I put in so it’ll make the device work.
Unfortunately, I checked config-x.xx.x-desktop and it has *CONFIG_SND_USB_USX2Y=m *on the line; it also has CONFIG_SND_US122 on a following line. I’ll try a different method – instead of using the proper vendor and product name, I’ll choose **Generic USB audio **from the sound card configuration in YAST. If that doesn’t work I’ll test the USB audio during the OS installation; this device was plugged in after the OS installation, and most devices are working when they are detected during installation (I.E. video cards).
