Re: [opensuse] Sound issues when installing 10.2

I'm going to try a complete wipe of the root partition, and delete all
users that were created for 10.2 and start clean... see what happens.

OK, I deleted the users from /home, and did a complete
reformat/reinstall of the 10.2 root partition (using the 32 bit
install off the 10.2 DVD iso). I installed KDE and Gnome, and had a
smooth easy install (as every time so far with 10.2). As part of the
install the sound card config correctly identified and set up my sound
card (Soundblaster 24 Live). I tested the card during the install
config - turned up the volumes to 80% - and sound is working exactly
as expected.

I completed the install, and started up KDE. No sound. As far as KDE
is concerned, there are no sound devices. Logged out and started up
Gnome. Same thing. Gnome tells me that there is no sound hardware
present on my computer.

If I start up YAST, the sound card is there and correctly configured.
Testing in YAST, and sound plays fine.

This shows it's identified....
cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [CA0106 ]: CA0106 - CA0106
Live! 7.1 24bit [SB0410] at 0xdc00 irq 50
1 [UART ]: MPU-401 UART - MPU-401 UART
MPU-401 UART at 0x330, irq 5

This seems to be a problem that other people are having too...

So... until this is corrected, I won't be using 10.2 :-( Bummer..
everything else seems to be working so nicely.

Anyway, if anyone else is having the same sound card problem, it's
probably worth subscribing to/monitoring the above bugs.
