I’m having sound card problems using openSUSE 11.0 on a Tohsiba Satellite L25-S119. This problem did not exist in 10.2, but it did in 10.3. I think I know what’s causing it, but I don’t know why.
I used openSUSE 10.2 for a long time on this laptop. I loved it, it worked great.
I made a fresh install of 10.3 back in January, and my soundcard started “skipping.” The original forum posts and a description of my hardware are here.
I never sorted it out, but switched to Kubuntu for a while, and it worked for my needs, but didn’t like it.
After testing the sound on a live CD four days ago, I installed 11.0, and my soundcard worked superbly for four days. I thought the problem was resolved. The difference from my 10.3 install (I think) is I didn’t immediately install all the apps I need. A few minutes ago, I installed Kdevelop and a few pdf viewers. A ton of dependencies got installed as well. I noticed some of these were kernel headers “for development.” Now the soundcard problem has reappeared, exactly as before.
I would post my /var/log/y2log for today, but I don’t have attachment posting rights.
Does anyone have suggestions of what else I can look for?
Thanks in advance
