Re: Trouble installing sound with AD1986a sndcard
Take the route of brute-force: download the latest knoppix cd and boot it. Should it come up with sound note which snd- modules are loaded and do the same with your Suse (is that version old?) If knoppix sound fails too, darn it. What I have done is buy a pci sound card (SB Live) that I know works well in linux.
