This is kernel-desktop. What’s with multiple kernels?
Normally openSUSE also keeps the older kernel installed when you install a newer one. You can boot that in “Advanced Options” in the boot menu.
You only have one kernel version installed. That should not happen unless you explicitly uninstall the other one(s), or manually disable the “multiversion” feature in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf.
OTOH it shouldn’t matter really. Personally I would rather try to troubleshoot it on the standard 13.2 kernel though, to rule out a problem related to the update to 4.2.0 (like missing/too old firmware e.g.).
But it’s probably not a good idea to jump back and forth either, especially if you are following and replying to two people at the same time…
So let’s just stay at 4.2.0.
Only found one firmware.
You need to install the version from KDE:stable. The one included in 13.2 will not work properly with the newer kernel.
What version do you have installed now?
rpm -q kernel-firmware
You can see all available versions when you click on “Versions” in YaST.
linux-b0xf:~ # modprobe -r snd-hda-intel
linux-b0xf:~ # modprobe -v snd-hda-intel
linux-b0xf:~ # dmesg | grep snd
Hm. And what does this give? (as asked by Takashi Iwai in the bug report)
modprobe -r snd-hda-intel
modprobe -v snd-hda-intel
dmesg | tail
An error occurred during the installation of
------- card-name --------
The kernel module snd-hda-intel for sound support
could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect
module parameters, including IO or IRQ parameters.
Can’t find anything on i915.
i915 is the graphics driver.
But your mkinitrd output gave an error message about that (missing firmware).
And missing firmware could also affect the sound driver.
linux-b0xf:~ # ls /usr/lib/modules-load.d
All right, that’s what causes the systemd-modules-load service to fail.
That’s a known “problem”, caused by the fact that sg.conf specifies a kernel module to load that doesn’t exist.
You can ignore that “error” (it’s a warning actually), or you can uninstall sg (but only if you don’t need it)
