I really like OpenSuse 11.1 and use it as my main workstation at work. But recently, perhaps after a maintenance update (I can't remember when it started) I am hearing repeated clicks and buzzes.

When I open up the Application Browser from slug I hear a click. When I open up Firefox I hear several clicks as a web page loads.

As a video or other media file loads in firefox, it starts with a loud buzz.

I am willing to go deep and modify the kernel if that is required to solve the problem - It's that annoying.

Has anyone experienced this problem and have a solution?

Thanks in advance,
