SUSE 10.0 Sound Problems After KDE 3.5 Update
Posted 21 November 2005 - 07:45 AM
Since updating to KDE 3.5, I get KNotify errors involving sound. This occurs when trying to run YAST Updates and in several other applications. Also, some wav files that used to play, such as the one when mail arrives with Evolution, no longer play. When opening or closing Firefox or other applications, the open and close sounds used with KDE break up and do not completely play.
One other forum poster says it is not a bug in KDE, but rather a problem from SUSE and how they set up sound. I don't know if or when it will be fixed, but just wondered if anyone else is experiencing this.

Another little problem I've noticed is with Kopete - using the Yahoo and MSN webcam options - the program will crash once in a while. Other then these two errors noted, KDE 3.5 is fantastic.

with no luck. I tried compiling the old aRts from KDE 3.4.3 for KDE 3.5 which compiled and initialized but the same problem persisted, so I guess it's deeper into kdelibs where the errors did happen.

Until 2 weeks ago I was running SUSE 10 on a Compaq Presario 700 no problems. Perfect sound. The notebook had progressed from SUSE 8 through to the current version with no problems. My desktops are running Win98 for my bookkeeping system.
Then some 20 days ago the notebook was stolen.
In search of a replacement I took a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro (V2040)
It came shipped with XP Pro pre-installed, so I decided that I would create a dual-boot machine... because of Accounting prog. that I haven't yet found a Linux solution for :-( and this seemed like a good way forward?
Using Win 98 I formatted the HDD in FAT32, then installed XP, and then SUSE 10. Sound was fine initially on both OS's. Then I downloaded the latest SUSE updates, and now the sound is causing me grief on the SUSE side. I can't hear a thing, and all my family can hear is a highpithched buzz?
The Win side is fine. Any ideas?

Try some of the solutions found on this forum thread.
BTW, what accounting software clone do you need/ what are you using in XP?

Yep, I updated everything.
Presently I am using Quick Books for the accounting package, but help is at hand :-) South African "Cubit" 2.7 will be available sometime in March. If this works then I can dispose of Win 98 and XP entirely. I have experimented running QB on Linux via Crossover Office. QB is heavily dependant on MS. One can export data to Excel format only. It needs IE and a mapi compliant e-mail program. I hav e done all the testing, but it just doesn't work. I must be one of the few people to have had the "Big Blue E" on a linux desktop? I didn't enjoy the experience :-(
I guess I will miss Google Earth and Clickatell too?
