I have a perfectly running 11.1 64 system. It is patched to the latest and even kde4.3.1 release 183
kernel info :
Linux a91f 22.214.171.124-0.1-default #1 SMP 2009-10-15 14:56:58 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The only thing which let’s me down are
the USB Logitech Headphones. Tried everything , including putting the USB Audio first in yast->hardware->sound. Kmixer shows it as Logitech Headphone next to the HDA Intel tab.
Pulseaudio is enabled.
Try to run Skype … headphones no sound, no mic its dead. Someone had the same problem in this forum and it seems to have gone away with the latest kernel from head.
To recompile the kernel for a perfectly good system is the last thing I want to do.
I do not have USB headphones, so I have no direct experience in this. I assume then that you believe you tried all the recommendations in this page: USB headphones - openSUSE
… I have a friend who noted their USB headphones only work if they boot their PC with the headphones plugged. Else they do not work. But thats just their PC and configuration.
Typically for sound problems I ask users provide detail as to their sound configuration, asking them to run the script: /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh
and post here the output URL it will provide when the script completes.
I also typically ask for the output of:
rpm -qa ‘alsa’
rpm -qa ‘pulse’
rpm -q libasound2
However, given I have no such device, I do not believe there is much I can to offer. Possibly someone else may be able to look at the output of the above thou, and make some suggestions.
