I have 2 PCs running Suse 9.2. The older one works
fine, but this second has probems with sound. The
- some apps do not work: amarok and xine in
particular. Amarok gives the impression of being
"stuck": the progress counter does not move off 0:00.
What makes this odd is that other apps do play sound:
xmms, grip, ogle.
- when I use the "test" button in Yast2 soundcard
set-up, it too seems to get stuck. It plays a sound,
but instead of the full sample, it plays the first
chord and a bit of the next, over and over and over
again. I get the same with alsaconf.
lspci says that the soundcard is VIA Technologies,
Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev
This is consistent with what the soundcard set up
(The PC that works has Multimedia audio controller:
VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller
I have tried various settings for ac97_quirk and
dxs_support, but while these change the quality of the
sound, the test sample is still "stuck" (expect for
some which remove it altogether).
I have tried adding and removing modules snd_via82xx
and via82cxxx_audio, but no improvement. (By default,
snd_via82xx is active and via82cxxx_audio is not.)
Has anyone got any ideas on this? The 2 PCs use NIS
etc so that the family can use either and get the same
environment ... except that if we forget which app it
is OK to use (and remember not to play mpeg4 files on
the affected machine at all), we can crash everything.
I picked up something a couple of years ago that I'm just beginning to
look at again now. It's called a Dazzle D-V Bridge. It looks pretty
cool. It has inputs and outputs of analog (RCA jacks), S-Video, and
firewire. It will convert analog to digital, digital to analog, or pass
What interests me most is playing media (i.e., old vcr tapes) and either
storing it or displaying it in real time on my pc, equipped with a 1394
card. Naturally, the appliance came with plenty of Windows and Mac
I know about and use vobcopy and ogle to play directly on my pc's dvd.
Is there software which will read the incoming stream and pass it
through to the screen?
If possible I'd like to use this without buying another tv card.
Just joined this list - hopefully it is the correct one for my question.
I have an MSI 915G based motherboard and SuSE 9.2 cannot detect the
onboard sound system. (CMI9880L)
I have tried BIOS settings for both AC97 and AZALIA.
I cannot find anything helpful on the SuSE website, nor Intel, nor ALSA,
Can anyone please help me with getting onboard sound working.

I was approached by a rep from VMWare about employment. I LOVE my job and
would never leave by my own choice. He asked me if I would mention that they
are looking for some programmers. Since I see VMWare comming up in all of
these lists I'm on, I didn't see a problem with forwarding his request.

Do you think you could maybe just mention on your discussion boards that
vmware is looking for a systems level graphics programmer with Open GL
that would be cool,

P.S. Don't kill the messenger!
And I can't find out where in the config it says it is going to do that, If I
try to launch ANY other music player I get a message saying some other
program is blocking it.. Also, and likely contributing (?) is a warning I get
on startup FATAL ERROR /tmp/mcop is reachable by user .. but nothing has
changed in those permissions so I have no idea what they are supposed to be,
and root gets the same messages. This is since the latest upgrades to
Kaffeine from Packman..
As far as I can tell no changes to the Kaffeine config file have been made.
but it's pretty clear that it is the only way to play music including cds!!
Well, right now anyway <VBG>
