In addition to that, from following various sound threads on other linux distributions, I believe there is one, and possibly two other undocumented codes (undocumented because this is very recent) which are hp-m4 and/or dell-m4 .
So, my recommendation, AFTER I get to see your /etc/modprobe.d/sound file, “MAY” be to add this line at the start of that file (ie add an extra line at the start):
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1
and then restart your pc and test your sound. (Its possible the end of the file is a better place to put the line - not sure).
Anyway, I’m curious to see what alsa rpms you have installed.
This does not read right to me, unless the alsa/SuSE dev has recently change the way this is supposed to work.
I have installed the alsa-driver-kmp-pae kernel before (on a different openSUSE version) and it did not require the debug as a dependency. You need to determine what package is requiring that as a alsa-driver-unstable-kmp-pae dependency.
You could try rolling back your alsa to the original version, which means removing this and your more current alsa versions. Then re-installing the latest alsa-driver-kmp-pae … hopefully you will not get that kernel this time.
The problem with your current setup is you could end up having the driver for a different (debug) kernel being used, which would mean your sound will not function. When I read your dmesg, that is suggested as a viable possibility to me.
ok, i reinstalled alsa-driver-kmp-pae after uninstalling the unstable one, then, after changing the options as suggested, rebooted… and i have sound. just with lots of static. any suggestions on how to get rid of that?
What model setting do you have applied in the /etc/modprobe.d/sound file?
Check your mixer. Back off on your volume levels to reduce the distortion. You may need to go to YaST > Hardware > Sound > Other > Volume and move those volume levels up fairly high, and move down the PCM/Master volume levels in your mixer.
Check your mixer to ensure you do not have a microphone on that is causing static.
I don’t have your hardware, so I can only ask questions …
I note this in your PC’s mixer:
!!-------Mixer controls for card 0 [Intel]
Simple mixer control ‘Master’,0
Mono: Playback 127 [100%] [0.00dB] [on]
Simple mixer control ‘PCM’,0
Front Left: Playback 207 [81%] -9.60dB]
Front Right: Playback 207 [81%] -9.60dB]
Simple mixer control ‘IEC958’,0
Mono: Playback on]
The master volume @ 100% could cause distortion. Can you back to off to 75% to 80% or so?
