suse 11.1 and biostar mcp6p motherboard
 
Hi

First I am very new to Linux, and have only installed it today.

I have had a message that my audio is not working, but it is with the default driver. The sound is quiet, and if the volume is turned up it is distorted.

Is this a driver problem?

If so which driver should I use?

I apologise for what is I am sure a very basic question, but I am very much feeling my way!!

Thanks in advance for any help I receive

We would need more information. What desktop environment are you using (Gnome, KDE 3, KDE 4, etc). What programs are you trying to get sound on? What are you using to control the volume? What hardware are you using for your audio?

At the risk of answering an old dead thread ... This is NOT likely a driver problem.

Go to YaST > Hardware > Sound > Other > Volume and turn the volume for both PCM and Master UP to about 95%. Close YaST. Then go to your mixer (kmix for kde and alsamixer for gnome) and move your PCM and Master volume up (or down) to a comfortable level, such that there is no distortion. Note every time you start a new multimedia application you may need to adjust your PCM level in your mixer.

Reference the audio error message, thats a bug in openSUSE-11.1, and there is a work around fix available.
