I am running 10.1 in parallel with an Suse 9.3 Installation. With Suse 9.3
sound works fine. With Suse 10.1 I was not able to get any sound out of my
The error looks similar to bug 127738 (Suse 10.0) however none of the described
work arounds made any difference.

! As already said, it was a parallel installation and no update !
! and none of the steps described in 127738 show any succes !

Installation with yast does not show any error message however the test button
does not deliver any sound. I tried alsaconf and alsamixer as well. Messages
show succesful restart of the sound driver but there wasn`t any success either.

Please find some information below:

I did try comment #8 but nothing happened. I deleted /etc/modprobe.d/sound and
rebooted. The card is still shown on yast but needs to be configured.
Configuration seems to be successful but the test button does not deliver any
sound. Is there any dependancy with KDE Sound system? KDE settings show: Sound
system deactivated.
My system has an additional on board sound system (AC97) but due to bad
experiences in the past I disabled it in BIOS leaving only the PCI-Card active.
