Thanks. I looked at your mixer settings, and I could not see any obvious mistaken settings.
I note your 32-bit openSUSE-11.0 has the latest 126.96.36.199 kernel, with an ALC268 hardware audio codec. Your sound device is using IRQ3, which is IMHO a bit unusual. I hope that is not the cause of the problem, as the choppy/clicking behaviour you decribe could be due to an interrupt problem.
Are you using the ndiswrapper for your wireless?
What does the following give for IRQ3?
Anyway, all that aside, lets try to see if a custom setting to your /etc/modprobe.d/sound file will help. You reported:
Please add an extra line on the end of that file, and save it, such that that file reads:
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
# u1Nb.U9oyRIdv6eB:82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=auto
and then restart your audio alsa driver with: su -c ‘rcalsasound restart’ and test your audio with the test I gave.
If that doesn’t work, then in the revised /etc/modprobe.d/sound file, replace “auto” with “acer”, and restart your audio alsa driver with: su -c ‘rcalsasound restart’ and test your audio with the test I gave.
If that does not work you can try some of the other model options for an ALC268. They are listed here for alsa 1.0.16:
3stack 3-stack model
toshiba Toshiba A205
acer Acer laptops
dell Dell OEM laptops (Vostro 1200)
zepto Zepto laptops
test for testing/debugging purpose, almost all controls can
adjusted. Appearing only when compiled with
auto auto-config reading BIOS (default)
And if that doesn’t work, please after a fresh reboot, type the following:
dmesg > dmesg.txt
and then open the file dmesg.txt with a text editor, and paste the output of that file to general pastebin - simplified internet collaboration (the file is too big to paste here) and then submit that file, and post the URL you are given here. There may be an error message in that file that will help provide a hint as to the problem.
