In addition, there are ALSA driver kernel modules to update. If that does not provide the codec, then another approach to obtain more information on your hardware and your sound configuration, is to run the following script. After configuring test your sound, and don’t forget to check your mixers . Note that openSUSE ships with ALSA , which is also installed by default.
The number of virtual channels for a device cannot be changed while it is in use. First, close any programs using the device, such as music players or sound daemons. Be sure to read the manual page of the driver for the device name to use for the driver.
NAS — This is a sound server supported by some major applications. JACK Audio Connection Kit — The older edition of a sound server for pro audio use, especially for low-latency applications including recording, effects, realtime synthesis, and many others. Although this edition is the older, it retains a very active and devoted development team, and which edition to use is not clear, trial and error is often helpful. In the absence of such device-specific options, there are various manual techniques you can use to track down driver files, and references to them in the Registry.
On the Startup page you’ll find a list of routines that are either in the common Startup folder or in the Registry’s Run or RunOnce sections. Just as with extraneous Control Panel entries, unticking one will stop it being loaded on the next boot (ideal for double-checking that it isn’t still required), and you can then delete the file manually. A Dialogue will appear with options to automatically search for the driver online, search on disk or select from a list. A list will appear containing the Realtek driver and the Microsoft generic driver.
It is often easiest to add the URL of the repository noted in the next section to one’s package manager, and install the rpm applications through one’s package manager. The rpm applications that are typically updated include alsa, alsa-utils, alsa-tools, and libasound2 alsa-firmware. Note alsa-firmware is in the “noarch” section of that rpm URL.
One of the most common problems faced is no sound after installing Ubuntu. While there could be several reasons for no sound in Ubuntu, I will share the tricks that worked for me. As it happens with every Ubuntu release, you install or upgrade to a newer Ubuntu version and run in to a number of problems. But then, there is always a way to overcome these big little problems. Then test your sound with the sound test provided at the start of this web page.
Don’t forget to check your mixer is not muting nor blocking the sound. The examples in the above URL are important, PLEASE check out that link to see the exact rpm/zypper installation commands you need to use.
Users are given a chance to configure this during the openSUSE installation. This guide is intended to help provide basic sound to openSUSE users whose sound does not work at all after a HP drivers new openSUSE install. This guide is not intended to show how to install codecs. The correct pcm device will automatically be allocated transparently to a program that requests /dev/dsp0.
