Im running OpenSUSE11.1 32bits on Dell Latitude D830 with Inter HDA driver. It has been working great for a long time until last updates. I guess it has something with the new kernel.
Its not that the sound doesnt work because if i run alsacong and then configure Sound in Yast then the sound start to work. But after reboot its gone again.
I checked out the SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE and it fails on the first sound test; #> speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav
but the second soundtest works: #> speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav
Everytime i reboot the sound is disabled (Speaker with a red cross over). When i run the soundtest it get enabled and now the sound is back again. New reboot and its disabled again.
And YES OF COURSE my user is member of group Audio!
I see several have similar problems after last kernel update, so it must be some kind of bug related to this problem.
