No sound after upgrading from OpenSUSE 13.2 to Tumbleweed

Hi!I was running OpenSUSE 13.2 32 bit and have just upgraded to Tumbleweed 32 bit.Unfortunately there is no sound coming out whether I am playing a movie on VLC or streaming youtube videos.

Please assist.

More information needed.

  1. Do you have any working sound at all? For example: YaST > Hardware > Sound > Other > ‘Play Test Sound’
    If not, review the openSUSE Audio troubleshooting guide.

  2. Do you have the required multimedia support (from the Packman repo) installed?
    Multimedia Guide for openSUSE Tumbleweed - Multimedia - openSUSE Forums

Test sound isnt playing when I run YaST > Hardware > Sound > Other > ‘Play Test Sound’

My sound configurations are as below

cat /proc/asound/version
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version k4.13.11-1-pae.

cat /proc/asound/modules

0 snd_hda_intel

cat /proc/asound/cards

0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xd4500000 irq 28

/sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -A2 VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a42] (rev 07)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:1484]
Kernel driver in use: i915

I have the multimedia rpms from Packman installed but still no sound.

Please help

Review the sound troubleshooting guide I linked to in the previous post.

In particular, run the ALSA diagnostic script

sudo /usr/sbin/

Let it upload the report to an online server, and report back here with the URL that it provides so that others can review the output.

Here is the output of
sudo /usr/sbin/ at URL below

Which output are you trying to listen to sound via? HDMI or speaker? I note that the speaker volume is down…

Simple mixer control 'Speaker',0
  Capabilities: pvolume pswitch
  Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
  Limits: Playback 0 - 87
  Front Left: Playback 0 [0%] -65.25dB] [on]
  Front Right: Playback 0 [0%] -65.25dB] [on]

I also suggest checking your PulseAudio configuration with the pavucontrol utility. Install it (package of the same name) if you haven’t done so already.

Issue is now fixed.

I went to PulseAudio Volume Control and in the Configuration tab I changed Built-In Audio to Analog Stereo Output and now I can get sound.

Thanks for all your help

Glad to have been of help :slight_smile:
