In installed 11.2 on system that was happy with 11.0 day before yesterday. I
tried to follow http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Intel-HDA_sound_problems because
it seemed there was no sound. In so doing I discovered that there is sound,
but the level is much too low. e.g. in VLC with sound level at 100% I can
barely tell there is sound. I tried alsamixergui, but it shows master at
about 50% and will not allow me to change it, even if run as root.
If I login X to root, I get startup and shutdown sounds, and test sound in
personal settings works. Also KMix sound control works, giving levels similar
to those in 11.0.
Regular user login sound is missing. Logout sound works. Test sound in
personal settings gives failure to initialize sound driver error popup
(default can't be opened for capture, operation not permitted) and
perpetually tries to start the sound server.
What do I do now?
BTW, my hardware is virtually identical to the above URL example. Codec is
ALC888 on ICH8, but I cannot tell for sure which model.
is my motherboard which says 7.1 Realtek ALC883 but lscpi says is 888.
