I would appreciate some assistance ...

I upgraded from 9x to 10x and the sound is now hit-or-miss with my VIA
AC97 controller.

When I run alsaconf, the demo sound plays. However, if I try to play
a youtube, there is no audio. If I try to access an mp3, there is no
sound. If I try to access a local sound file, I get a message " Could
not open resource for writing."

I searched the Novell (SuSE) KB to no avail and I have not found a TID
yet to address the issue.

What am I missing?
