Few things I need to sort out with Opensuse
Posted 04 December 2007 - 05:49 AM
First below is a summary of my system specs:
Processor: AMD® BOXED ATHLON™64 X2 3800+ PROCESSOR - 2.0GHZ DUAL CORE SOCKET AM2 2X512K 2000MHZ HT 90NM AMD64
Motherboard: GIGABYTE® "S SERIES" NVIDIA NFORCE 430 CHIPSET - FOR AMD K8 PROCESSORS @ 1000MHZ HT - INTEGRATED MAINBOARD - SOCKET AM2 ONLY

4X SATA2 + 2X ATA133, NVRAID, 2X PCI, 1X PCI-EXPRESS 1X, 8 X USB 2.0 (4 BY CABLE), IEEE1394, FULL ATX
FEATURES 1X PCI EXPRESS X16 SLOT, REALTEK 8CH HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO, NVIDIA INTEGRATED LAN, MICROATX, FEATURES SAFE & SMART TECHNOLOGY
Graphics Card: GEFORCE 6100 VGA, 512MB
RAM: Times 2" TRANSCEND® JETRAM™ HIGH-PERFORMANCE 512MB DDR2-533 240-PIN MODULE : CL4, 4-LAYER PC BOARD (Aka in total 1GB Or Ram)
Box: GIGABYTE® CHASSIS - ATX TOWER 4-IN-1 SOLUTIONS : BLACK/SILVER DUAL TONE CHASSIS, KEYBOARD, MOUSE WITH 400W 24-PIN PSU

Soundcard: CREATIVE® SOUND BLASTER AUDIGY VALUE PCI SOUND CARD - 6 CHANNEL SURROUND SOUND SUPPORT - EAX SUPPORT
How do I emulate Mp3's to surround sound? In other words how can I get mp3 audio to play out through all my speakers (I have a 5.1 speaker setup)
Question 2) I have two hard discs, the one that Opensuse is installed on an IDE, and the other with all my backups is a SATA drive. Problem is that my SATA drive is formated to be a "Dynamic Disc Drive" and of cause Opensuse can't mount it. Anyideas?

<<<For your issue I am uncertain but maybe this helps a little:
It seems that snd-intel8x0 driver is just working fine. Only the switches in Kmix should be enabled (Mic as Centre/LFE and Line in as Surround), the video player has to support AC3 ( I used xine 0.99 - only the setup of the audio channel should be set to 0, not to Auto) and of course the movie should be 5.1. The 5.1 surround works with no problem.
<<<There is a lot of info on this page, too much to copy over but it looks like it also may help...
<<<For the second question I think you can find the answer here:

Although I have a decent beginners concept of Suse I am having my own issues with Grub, I joined linuxquestions.org which I suggest you read as much there as you can then join and post your issues/questions, wish I could help more or tell you why what was working didn't continue to work.
