I’m quite the newbie with linux in general.
I’ve scoured the forums to try to figure out how to get the sound working on my Lenovo Ideapad S740.
I previously installed elementary OS and I couldn’t get the sound to work on that distro either. I ended up switching to OpenSUSE for no main reason, but I still can’t get the sound working.
Here are some of the outputs that I’ve seen on other forums being asked for
--- no soundcards ---

Any help would be greatly appreciated to try and figure out how to get my sound.
I’ve tried to go into YaST and reconfigure the Intel Cannonlake PCH card as it shows up in the YaST GUI but I just get an error that the kernel module for sound support could not be loaded
