Check your PCM volume.

Thanks. That was around 60-66%. I turned it all the way up. That made a
big improvement. After also turning everything else up all the way, I
have to guess the output level and quality are now up to about 1/3 of
XP. I give a grade of B+ to XP, D to SUSE. Is there anything else to
dial it up more?

Do you have alsamixergui installed? If not then do so, run it and make sure that LINE is activated (ie, click on it, bottom, and after it turns grey use the up-arrow to increase the level). Might as well check all the other levels while you have the mixer opened.


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
