I've recently installed SuSE 8.2 on a new machine (intel P4 2600 MHz, P4 Titan GA-8SG800 board). There were some (3D acceleration) problems with the NVidia GEForce video card, but I've got all that working now. One thing remains problematic, and that's sound.
This P4 board has got an onboard sound system, detected by SuSE as a SIS7012 / Intel i8x0.
The problem is that there is simply no sound. The boot.msg says: <snip> <notice>'/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S10smbfs start' exits with status 6 <notice>/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S13alsasound start <notice>'/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S13alsasound start' exits with status 0 <notice>/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S13fbset start <notice>Searching for unresolved configuration files done
Please check the following files (see /var/adm/rpmconfigcheck):
and in /etc/mailman.mail-gid.rpmnew is just '65533'.
(and the boot.msg ends with "Skipped services in runlevel 5: smbfs")
The TTY10 console says things like: - modprobe: can't locate Module sound-slot-0 - modprobe: can't locate Module sound-service-0-0 - modprobe: can't locate Module char-major-116 over and over again. I can see there's two lines in modules.conf mentioning 'major-116', but thery're commented out. I do not know if I can simply start fiddling with these lines in modules.conf, but since I'm reasonably new to Linux, I thought it's better to ask first before I start breaking things :-)
Some days ago I ran alsaconf; which indeed succeeded insofar that I could play device sounds ... but they sound very bad (like multiple modules are loaded) and MIDI and the like are still dead; I get repeated messages saying 'no sound card available or not yet configured'.
So, I deleted the ALSACONF portion again from the modules.conf, and am back to no sound at all.
Here my lack of experience starts to take its toll: I'm at a loss. Anyone any idea what to try next?
thanks a lot ...
I sent a message titled '[SLE] trouble with SIS7012 aka Intel i8x0 onboard sound card' to this list in error. It should have been the suse Linux-e list.
