Hi Dan,

I don't know if it'll help, but I'll share my personal collection of SUSE
Linux sound 'forensics/repair' notes:

a) try, as root in a shell, deleting the file /etc/modprobe.d/sound and
running alsaconf

b) for a sound card with a broken config or won't configure at all:

as root:
rpm -e --nodeps kdemultimedia3-mixer (removing just the mixer)
rcalsasound stop
rm /etc/asound.state
rcalsasound start
alsactl store
then run:

Note: After you have your sound settings right, open up another terminal, su
to root and type: alsactl store ... (read man alsactl for more info.)

c) is a good place to go if you're having problems with
sound under Linux
