I have suse 11.4 installed and I wish to replace the on-board sound chip with an add-on sound card. The following are available at my local shop but they cannot advise whether any will work on Linux Suse 11.4.
Anyone know which of these cards will work on Suse 11.4?
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Asus Xonar DS
I was just given a computer from a coworker and installed the latest Slackware version on it. I then installed Gnome Slackbuild and installed the Nvidia driver.I've run alsaconf and it seems to run fine without any errors and unmuted all the channels in alsamixer.
I borked my perfectly good 11.2 install, while replacing a failing hard drive. I reinstalled, and now my sound doesn't work - or not quite. I get the left front channel, nothing else. Battle Duel crashes due to sound errors - or I probably wouldn't care.
I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.2 and just about the only thing that doesn't work is my wireless internet. From my research, I should be using the iwl4965 or iwlwifi driver; however my system seems to be running iwlagn. I have no idea how to switch it as neither of the correct drivers can be found in my yast, and I've failed to find any information about this on the Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux* website.
When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:
I'm trying to get sound to work on an embedded board. The boot says ALSA is present and sound chip is present. So I try to open the device with:
The hardware manufacturer assures me the device is hw:0,0 so I set device to:
This gives me:
So I'm presuming the advice that I use hw:0,0 must be wrong? So I need to find a way of working out what the device id is. I've tried default, no effect, then tried the command asoundconf list, which returns an error. I'm using a min linux build on an embedded system (busybox) so is there a way to find my sound device.
I have these Creative Inspire M4500 4.1 surround sound speakers.I got them to work succesfully on my older computer by installing the ALSAmixer. and then unmuting the channels. However on my new computer even after installing ALSAmixer, i cannot seem to be able to get playback from my rear two speakers. I tried the community ubuntu documentation and ALSA's own guide(which seemed too complicated for me.)
ive just installed dosbox, my favorite dos emulator. in windows, i usually used to play doom and both sound and video worked flawlessly. when i tried running doom in dosbox in ubuntu, the game ran perfectly, but the problem is with the sound. the soundblaster sound effects stutter and are not even working at times. the soundblaster based music doesnt even work! i either blame pulse-audio or the defaut config settings.
i just reported a bug to launchpad (#511562. i'm not sure if this bug is in flashplugin-installer or pulseaudio.when i use firefox or chrome for watching a flash video from videos for example, all works good. i then transfer the sound to a remote sink using sound preferences > output > internal audio analog stereo on myuser@otherhost. after this is done, the flash video halts. this is also true if i restart firefox and start a new video, already having transferred the sound. sometimes you can see the video taking huge skips forward. for example, on a 3 minute music video, i see 3-4 different frames from different places in the video. the sound is ok though! 100% reproducible and if i transfer the sound back to local speakers the video resumes and plays perfectly.
I have made a pretty sizable mistake. I was trying to figure out why my game was having sound issues when I was told to update my sound drivers. After a bit of searching, I came across this website. I downloaded and ran the script in the first link. Minor problem: I was using PulseAudio, not ALSA. Needless to say, the script didn't work. After the machine rebooted, I had no sound at all. I was planning on switching to ALSA anyway, so I found this thread and ran the following commands:
when i tried to watch a videos video today, i noticed that i suddenly didn't have sound anymore just yesterday, it still worked fine. changing the video volume didn't do anything, so i looked at the mixer icon in the taskbar - and noticed to my surprise that it was suddenly set to mute, without me ever having touched it!
i set it back to full volume, but still nothing. i then tried to play ordinary videos in nmy video layer, but also there - no sound! so it's not limited to flash videos. the sound test in yast doesn't play any sound, either, it produced just a very short popping sound, that's all. i tried turning off pulse audio there, but that didn't change anything, so i turned it on again (i use pulse audio for sound).
next, i tried the kde control panel, but got no test sound either, just again the very short popping sound on htting the test button and nothing else. i've even tried switching the preference from xine (which i normally use) to gstreamer, but that didn't change anything either. then i did a reboot and tried things again, but no change. finally, i checked my headphones. they were plugged in properly, and plugging them out and back in again didn't do anything either.
so i'm out of ideas what i could still try. sound hardware is realtek hd onboard sound, which is identified as "hda ati sb alc889a analog". kde is 4.4 rc3, which i've been using already since over a week without problems, so i doubt that's the problem.
I have been experiencing this peculiar issue with Ubuntu 9.10. Whenever the system boots, the audio doesn't work but when I do a 'sudo alsa force-reload', the volume icon gets muted and on unmuting it the audio works. This is the information regarding the audio device I get on doing lspci
I'm trying to use a webtv subscribtion on ubuntu kermic, however it seems that that vlc dosnt support wmap yet, so i'm not getting any sounds on it. Does anyone have a clue on how to get this fixed, or if its even possible to get it fixed? I've tried searching guides for it without anyluck. And when i'm trying to set it to use gmplayer or totem it dosn't work either, mplayer and totem dosnt get either picture or sound.
I was just using the mic and watched it stop working suddenly. I was in the middle of a skype test call when the graphical mixer level died down to zero in the middle of the call. When the test call was played back, the first part sounded fine then the sound got lower until it became inaudible. Since then I can't get any sound from my mic in skype.
Also, the audio input level graphically shown in Sound Preferences shows no fluctuations in sound as it used to before. The input device is enabled. I tried using Sound Recorder to record some sound clips and that worked fine. So the mic is working but Sound Preferences and Skype seem to have the mic level really low. I'm not sure what else to think considering it was working perfectly a few minutes ago. I've tried restarting, but that didn't fix it either.
I have a Intel server board machine that has a on board Matrox cardWith 11.2 the install barfs to text mode configuring the card during install butonce you log in a root and run sax2 it is OK once the machine restartsWith 11.3 it installs ( apparently ) perfectly then just goes to a blackscreen .. the usb keyboard is dead and that is that
trying to get ALSA running on a mainboard with onboard Intel soundchip using the snd-hda-intel driver. aplay detects no devices and amixer says: "Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory". Tried everything from the ALSA troubleshooting manual but no success... why is the card not recognized?Here is the output of a debug script I found. Up to now I just did "configure;make;make install" with alsa-utils, alsa-lib and alsa-driver...

My intel pro wireless 2200 NIC doesn't work anymore. Yesterday it did, but not today (I didn't do anything special, so that it could go wrong).What is ucode and -62? Any ideas? I already checked the forums and found that ipw doesn't work when ndiswrapper is loaded. Well, I don't have it loaded. What happend?
I am using Open Suse 11.2 on my HP DV6 notebook. I am connecting my television to the notebook with a HDMI cable and the television is unable to find any signal. Am I missing anything here? Shouldn't it be simply connecting the HDMI cable finding the source channel on the television and then I get sound and picture..
