http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, this is my first post here :-) I have been using openSUSE since 11.1, and are now on 11.2. Consider myself as a Linux newbie, but have more experience with computers in general, mostly on Windows then. My problem is that the sound on my new 11.2 installation has "cracks" (don't know the correct English word for it, but it sounds like a radio that is slightly out of tune). With 11.1 I had to compile the driver myself, and the sound worked then. With 11.2 the card is detected automatically, and I have sound, - but of bad quality... On Windows XP the sound is working. Some observations: In the Multimedia - System Settings of KDE the card shows up as Creative X-Fi, and in KMixer it is also named as X-Fi. But in YaST2 Sound Configuration the card is not listed. When I try to add it manually, I get an error message saying: "The kernel module error for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including IO or IRQ parameters." The hardware information in YaST2 list the card like this Other hardware specs: Asus A8N SLI Premium mainboard, AMD X2 CPU. Any help appreciated. :-) (Distributions)
