Ok all this issue is driving me crazy, Im having problems getting my speakers to work properly on my linux box. They will play all system sounds perfectly-but they won't play music cds, theres no sound with youtube videos, etc. Ive tried everything and Im at my wits end-it won't work using the sound card built into my motherboard (Biostar TP-45E) or using the HDMI with my video card (gigabyte ATI 4550) the sound card is recognized it just won't play. I think the issue is a codec issue, however I can't find a way to download the necessary codecs without paying an arm and a leg for them. Im using Mandriva One. Anyone know a way I can get the necessary codecs free and legally? Im using mandriva one 2010 32 bit, with the gnome environment.

Second problem is if I go to install any updates or sofware using the software management tool, it gives me this error:

There was a problem during the installation:
rpm database is locked, process 1199 is already using it (user/bin/perl /usr/sbin/urpmi --gui--allow-medium-change --auto --no-verify-rpm --expect-install imwheel)

All I could find on the issue suggested there was a update program running in the background or ghost update, and that I should either restart it (which I did to no avail) cancel the urpmi in the system monitor (there isnt one) or close it out via terminal (wouldnt let me) anyone else know a solution to these issues? thanks.

Have you downloaded all the codecs for your distribution of Linux? Your card is working fine, its the applications that aren't. That signifies Codec issues.

See, that was what I was thinking was a codec issue, because every time I play a video, it says it needs so and so codecs to run, but I have to pay for them. I was playing with it last night, and found some codecs on the install new hardware manager, but due to the second problem im having, I can't download them. Im about to call it quites and go back to OpenSuSe, even though I kinda like mandrivas layout better.

moot point, I finally got sick of fighting it and went back to OpenSuSe, all issues are resolved, I can watch my youtube videos AND listen to them.
