Suse 9 Sound problem

I just put Suse 9.0 on my HP 6653C and I can't get any sound. I ran lspci -v and it shows my sound card as Rockwell (Riptide for Windows). When I ran alsaconfig, it didn't find any sound devices. Does anyone know something I might try to solve this? Thank you

Re: Suse 9 Sound problem

try the
sndconfig
utility

If it can find the module -then maybe you've inserted the speackers in wrong socket or you need to increase the volume.

if it can not - the www.google.com is your best bet on finding it.

Re: Suse 9 Sound problem

If its an add in sound card, check the simple stuff.

Inserted fully, certified for Linux.

If drivers do not exist you need another sound card or Operating System. Red Hat/Fedora has slightly wider hardware support. Or you could compile your own driver.

Hi,

you might need special drivers. Check

for details.

Re: Suse 9 Sound problem

Thanks for all of the replies... but I'm still not getting sound. I know everything is correctly connected because my sound works when i bood in windows. Ive tried those drivers from linuxant.com and they install but the sound still doesn't work. I dont know what else to do...

Re: Suse 9 Sound problem

Hello Pete,

can you do an lsmod and post the output here so one might check if the driver actually got loaded?
