I have a problem with the audio output of KDE 3.5.3 (the KDE version

2. I tested two other distributions (Kubuntu 6.06 and SusSE 10.1) in the
last weeks: I had no sound on both distributions. On Ubuntu 6.06
(using GNOME) audio is available (but I have no idea about the used

I am looking forward for some help.
lsmod | grep snd looks similar to mine, so have a look at AUMIX, it may
Hope i could be helpful.
