Sound in OpenSuse 11.1 on Dell D830

One problem I had left since my latest post my sound was not working properly.

But with a little googling I got it fixed via this post, with many thanks to the writer. Although the sound card of my machine is a little different:
makker-laptop:~ # lspci|grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

makker-laptop:~ # cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#*|grep Codec
Codec: SigmaTel STAC9205
Codec: Conexant ID 2c06
His solution did work for me:
  • Edit /etc/modprob.d/sound:
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop
# u1Nb.bHIrUAw8+c5:82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
  • Reboot
OpenSuse 11.1 looks great. But installing is in my experience not so evident as with 10.3 or 11.0.
Luckily if Google is also your best-friend, it is a doable job.
