Description:I installed SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 that uses a Linux 2.6.5 kernel. When I installed the OS, I chose a minimal package install. I compiled the latest asterisk out of CVS. So far things have gone OK. I can establish phone calls (SIP, TDM, etc) and the quality is good.

Only problem is that I can get no sound out of Asterisk itself: prompts, comedian mail prompts, etc. I can see messages on the console showing things like:

   -- Executing NoOp("SIP/1547-5fbe", "") in new stack
   -- Executing Goto("SIP/1547-5fbe", "intern-post|9500|1") in new stack
   -- Goto (intern-post,9500,1)
   -- Executing VoiceMailMain("SIP/1547-5fbe", "1547@intern") in new stack
   -- Playing 'vm-password' (language 'en')

And since I know the menus I can step through them without hearing the prompts so I do not believe it is script/extentions  problem. The server has no sound card but I have never needed one to date. In desperation, I even installed the ALSA sound system, recompiled asterisk, and adjusted /etc/asterisk/modules.conf to use ALSA instead of OSS, but this did not help.

I figure that since I did a minimum install on SUSE, there is some key program that I have not installed but is needed. However, I can find no complaints on the asterisk console or messages leading me closer to a solution -- even with maximum debugging turned on.
