When I first installed 11.0, the sound level was such that I needed the
speakers on full. Then an update gave me reasonable volume. A few days ago,
after some more updates, the sound reduced to a crackling and spluttering
or nothing at all. Driver is “snd-hda-intel”. Sound is working on Vista.

You can check your updates, to see what might have caused this, by typing in a konsole: rpm -qa --last > installed-rpm-files.txt
then open up “installed-rpm-files.txt” with your favourite text editor (or word processor).
Please note to test your sound functionality, please copy and paste the following into a konsole/xterm: speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav
It will stop after 5 “left”/“right” attempts (ie “-l5”).
If you have no sound, and if following the steps in the audio troubleshooting guide doesn’t help you, then please copy and paste into an xterm/konsole the following commands (and paste here their output): rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
and also copy and paste the following two commands (which run a diagnostic script) into an xterm konsole, while your PC is connected to the internet. Those scripts will check your audio, and paste the results onto a URL on the internet. Please paste the URL here.
