This is an already installed on HD system from a dead 5 year old AMD motherboard/CPU/APU migrating to new parts form AMD, Asus, Corsair and EVGA. Booting 15.1 and 15.2 and reconfiguring for the changed MAC address was no problem. Even 42.3 and 13.1 boot with no (required) changes other than 70-persistent-net.rules. Getting X to work was handled in another thread. YaST sound module accomplished nothing. https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Audio_troubleshooting looks so out of date it’s almost scary, much like 5 years ago.

I know there’s a cmdline initialization command I want to try, but its name is apparently in a memory black hole, as is the name of the SLE dev who got me through a similar ordeal several years ago. Neither alsactl nor aplay seem to be the right one. I know it’s in a bug report I at least commented several years ago, but B.O.O. is behaving horribly slowly whenever I try to search it (unless it’s a saved search).
It really would be nice to get (HDMI only) audio working without another 20 hours of searching and experimenting.
