OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Every 6th. Or 7th. Boot The Sound Dies ?

Jun 5, 2010

Suse 11.2 - KDE 4.3.5. I have only one sound card. The only Pulse software that is installed is libpulse0 and libxine1-pulse. All sound applications work. Amarok, vlc, kaffeine, Skype etc. But then every say 6th. or 7th. boot the sound dies. On everything. Even the startup melody. When I go to Yast>Hardware>Sound everything looks in order but the test on the card makes no sound. But if I delete the active card then re-enable it everything works again.

I saved the working /etc files as *.works and ran the following script...

The only difference was a slight volume difference in asound.state (23 vs 27).

I thought I might try to diagnose it by doing a file search for file changes in the last 5 minutes immediately after I run the Yast re-enable.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Dies After A Random Time Of Playback

Jan 27, 2011

When I start Audacious and make it play music, after a random time the player
freezes up and the music stops playing. I have to make Audacious force quit and restart it, then it works for some time again. When I play a ..... video (in Firefox), it plays fine for some time and then it loses sound and either continues playing silent or the video stops and doesn't start again until I reload the page.

I use kernel 2.6.31-11-rt and the soundcard is...

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: When Boot Up, (runlevel 3), Sound Is There Via The Mic/line-in Jack, But As Soon As KDE Starts, The Sound Cuts?

Jun 24, 2011

I recently bought a set of 2.1 speakers, all is fine. I like to listen to my DAB radio through them. When I boot up, (runlevel 3), sound is there via the mic/line-in jack, but as soon as KDE starts, the sound cuts. I can get it back by:~>alsamixerand then F6 and then scroll to mic, switching to ON and slider up to full and then mic boost up to 65% or so.Can I tell something in KDE to default to mic/line-in on?kmix does not give the full picture I see in other's posts, like here:ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hostingjust a single slider under each tab, like this:

General :: Login Window Dies When User Authentication Dies

Mar 8, 2011

Am trying to set up a new system but am getting some strange behavoir. I've administered an Irix system before. I have opensuse 11.3 installed with gnome running. When i enter a bad user id in the windows login screen, the bad authentication causes the x window manager to crash and leaves the system in the ascii terminal mode login. I then have to login as root and do an init 3 , then init 5 to get the x server started again an get the windows login started. Has any one seen this behavior before and how can i fix this. Been hunting through /etc/X11/xdm to see what startup scripts could be causing this.

Debian Configuration :: Nmbd Daemon Dies After Boot?

Mar 7, 2010

I am running a recently built Debian 'Lenny' system 5.0.4.I used the gui install and asked for desktop/file server/ I created a raid 1 systemsing two similar drives.Finally I set up some samba shares to use from my (wife's) windows PC. I wanted to use PC names rather than IP adresses to access the shares so activated wins.My Debian system, called arcturus, did not appear in windows network places. After much trial and error and googling found that the nmbd service had stopped.'/etc/init.d/samba restart' reported nmbd not present, stopped smbd and then restarted both. My networking then all came to life.There is a Ubuntu forum discussion around this subject and the consensus seems that the samba daemons are starting before the network is properly established. I have installed a work-around by putting the restart line in /etc/rc.local.But I'm concerned that I have some kind of configuration error.The following is a section of my log.nmbd after setting logging to level 3:-

Initialising global parameters

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok2 Sound Lost When Other Sound Plays

Dec 29, 2009

openSUSE 11.2 64bit
libxine1 from Packman
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

Maybe it's just an Amarok2 problem, but whenever another app (for example Konversation) plays a sound file, the audio instantly cuts out (in Amarok2) and will not come back unless I quit Amarok2 and restart it.

Amarok2 has only the options - "HDA ATI SB VT 1708S Analog" or "PulseAudio" (which is NOT installed).

Also I am totally confused by the mixer, it has so many knobs that I am totally lost!

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Snd_sbawe ISA Sound Card Not Giving Sound

Feb 9, 2010

I encountered this on a 10.3 system but there might be similar problem with the 11 series. Having gone through the business of obtaining config info on this card via pnpdump and subsequently using Yast to configure and install it, I encountered a situation whereby the card was fully functional as far as the "Test Sound" option of Yast was concerned. However, after a reboot, it was not loaded and no sound was possible. Debugging the "alsasound" script, I discovered that the directory /proc/asound was not in place at that time and, therefore, sound was not started.

The solution was to add the module name (snd_sbawe) to /etc/sysconfig/kernel to the parameter "MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT". Seems like Yast did not see a reason to do this itself.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PulseAudio High CPU Usage And Dies In 10.04 (ALS4000)

Jun 28, 2010

I know there already a LOT of posts on the forum about pulse audio. I had some problems upgrading from Karmic to lucid, Pulse just kinda dies, but I left it be. Recently I brought a fresh 1TB hard disk and decided it was time for a clean install of 10.04 to fix that. I am running of a clean install, only additional packages I have pulled down are the Nvidia driver, wine, and VLC.. the rest is 'out of the box' config. Have tried reinstalling 3 or 4 times, I get the same sound problem each time. Pulse works fine to start with, I can play music, play warcraft under wine with sound.

However as time goes on I find that the pulseaudio process takes up more and more cpu time. Eventually it hits about 90% plus then crashes out. The system hangs for a minute, then resumes with no sound. When I run "top" the pulseaudio daemon is no longer running. The only way to get sound back is to manually "Pulseaudio -D" or to reboot the system. This isn't just "a warcraft problem". It happens with Spotify (also under wine) Rthymbox, and VLC. A friend suggested I run the Pulseaudio daemon with a higher cpu importance? Is that sensible? Are there any pages where i can read up on how better to configure pulse? I have read lots of guides about linux sound problems and most seem to be about alsa not pulse.

My hardware info is included below:

OpenSUSE Network :: HW Modem Connects But Ppp Dies W/e #2?

Mar 14, 2010

I just loaded 11.2 & Kde 4.3. Installed both Kinternet and Kppp. My modem is a USR PCI HW modem 2976. Hardware Info shows it connected to /dev/ttyS4. I configured the modem with Yast as modem0. The user access box is checked for Kinternet Both Kppp and and Kinternet will dial out.

The connect response comes back from the ISP and either of the dialers will hang and the dial tone comes back. The firewall is showing modem0 in the External section. Nothing changes if I shut the firewall off.There's nothing in the dmesg I could find. Could this be a pppd permission problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Boot Up Sound Not Working?

Mar 2, 2010

I recently noticed that when I boot up ubuntu it no longer plays the cool startup music. I think it may have something to do with me removing these packages in synaptic package manager because they were interferring with my sound in total annihilation for spring. Most of the packages below were reinstalled because my sound icon disappeared and I had to reinstall them. But are any one of these packages responsible for the ubuntu boot up sound?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 And Vista Dual Boot - No Sound Working

Mar 14, 2011

I have installed on dual boot Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10.10. However, sound is not working in Ubuntu, it does work in Vista so I think it is safe to say it is not a hardware problem(and the sound is turned up etc and correctly plugged in). I am quite new to using Ubuntu, so am unsure what information is needed for assistance. I have tried browsing and searching the forums with no luck. I quite need sound so i can listen to my University lectures and do work!

Description: Audio device
Product: MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S High Definition Audio
Vendor: nVidia Corporation
Physical id: 7
Bus info: pci@0000:00:07.0
Version: a1
Width: 32 bits
Clock: 66MHz
Capabilities: pm msi ht bus_master cap_list
Configuration: driver=HDA Intel latency=0 maxlatency=5 mingnt=2
Resources: irq:20 memory:fe020000-fe023fff

Also, it is connected via HDMI to my tv, which is where i would like the sound to come from (I use my small tv as a dual monitor).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In 11.3 64-Bit

I just moved from 11.2 to 11.3 and I find that I'm unable to get my sound working. I get this output from dmesg:

[ 6.414532] EDAC MC0: Giving out device to 'amd64_edac' 'RevF': DEV 0000:00:18.2

I don't seem to get any sound out of any speaker tests, they all return that the device is missing, but I'll try others (I can't remember exactly which commands I've tried at this point, I've been scouring the web looking for things to try).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: DVD No Sound On 11.3?

Sep 8, 2010

After a fresh install of 11.3 from 11.2 on my system I went about updating packages to play DVD's. On 11.2 I found a web page that talk you through it and it worked like a dream. But can't get vlc, cine, mplayer etc to play DVD's with sound only picture on11.3 or sound from websites, no sorry mplayer will play sound but it's mess up and i can't get rid of any subtitles.

I've been searching for almost a day, and no luck, I justended up installing more packages.

(my system does play sound so it's not on mute as it always plays the start up turn)

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: KDE 4.6 RC1 / No Sound

Dec 30, 2010

Last Night I upgraded to KDE 4.5.90 (KDE 4.6 RC1). I got a message telling me hardware had been removed. After much trial and error it seems that the update REMOVED alsa-firmware. To fix this just reinstall alsa-firmware logout and login again and your sound should work again. I am not sure if you need to logout and login but i know if you do it does work and I guess KDE should detect it when it loads. So if your upgrading to RC1 remember after installation reinstall alsa-firmware

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sound - Wireless - Boot - In 11.2

Jan 9, 2010

In Ubuntu, almost all of my hardware connected right out of the box (I'm sure you've heard this sob story before). The only problems I've had with that was getting the wireless to work; I now have some shell scripts I've put together that use ndiswrapper to get it up and going within 15 minutes after a fresh install, and it works from then on with no problems. My only other concern was that the 3D from my Radeon isn't that good, but that's no bog concern right now.

So, long story short, I downloaded the openSUSE 11.2 usb install, set it up, booted it live and watched the magic happen. KDE is beautiful as always, and I must admit that I'm impressed with the distro's power. I installed to the HDD, eventually reinstalled GRUB2 from Ubuntu, and got to work (notice, all of the following happened with either distro's copy of grub, in fact openSUSE's grub caused more problems).
HOWEVER, I do have a few concerns:

1) Sound. I spend probably 50% of my computer time listening to music, browsing the internet, or (usually) both. In the LiveUSB mode, sound worked perfect; the login/logout sounds worked nicely and any extra noises worked too. Now, I boot into the HD install and get error messages saying my Realtek AC97 isn't working. Of course, to complicate things, if I go into the YaST->Hardware->Sound and do a sound test, it works great; just, everything else doesn't work sound-wise.

2) Wireless. I have a Broadcomm BCM4318 AirForce 51 card; as I mentioned, I used Ndiswrapper in Ubuntu to get it working. In openSUSE, the wireless light on my laptop's case glows (as it does when it's operating fine), the system recognises that it's there, but I can't manage to connect to the internet. Is there some process you must go through to locate and connect to a wireless router? Do I HAVE to manually enter all of the information of my router or is there an option to scan for networks? I used a scan button in the network manager and it just showed a map with an image of a PC with four 'waves' going to the right. Maybe a tutorial on setting up wlan would be helpful.

3) Boot. Well, this is more of an annoyance than anything else...when I boot into openSUSE, it shows the scrolling text as it loads everything and, at the very end, manages to fail to boot into rootlevel 5, going to 3 instead. All I have to do is type "startx" and it'll boot into the desktop GUI, but is there a way to tell the system to run that command automatically? (p.s. another "fix" mentioned finding 'xde' and setting it to run on level 5, my system only has xde.rej which I thought was odd).

System specs:
Compaq Presario V5000 (v5005us)
-AMD Sempron 2.0GHz
-1.25 GB RAM
-100GB 7200rpm HDD
-ATI Radeon Xpress 200M (a 4xx (480?) series card, integrated, 128mb gfx)
-ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 AC'97 Audio Controller (the Realtek AC97)
-Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
