I’ve been using OpenSuse 11.0 for about three months now, and everything (speakers, mic, webcam) works, except the audio from the headphones of my Gateway M-7844.
I tried to fix it a couple of months ago and started doing some of the things suggested in this forum. Somehow, I managed to erase GRUB! rotfl! I did learn a couple of things: watch out what you do as sudo! and related with this, the power that I have as a Linux user. After having to re-install my operative system, and having lost some important stuff, I decided to leave the headphone issue aside.
But now I need them for professional reasons, and so here I am. Would anybody please help?
Here’s some info to give a better overview of my system and settings:

As I said, speakers webcam and mic work well; when I connect a headphone jack, the speakers don’t stop working, which I guess makes sense…Help much appreciated.
