no sound: how to update the kernel or alsa in opensuse 10.2?
for some reason headphones and microphone won't work on my hp dv6000: I'm using Opensuse 10.2 (sound card mcp51 High Definition). Although Yast sees the sound card, I get sound just from the speakers. In this way Skype is not usable, for example.
I read every forum that exists, no one has a real solution. But I know that OpenSuse 10.3 supports this sound card perfectly (I tried that, but then I could not stay with it due to wlan drivers). It is a question of kernel, I know. The newest alsa will suport the sound card as well.
Now, it seems I have three options:
1) burn a opensuse 10.3 dvd and start with an update;
2) install alsa (but how can I uninstall the version I have installed?)
3) update the kernel.
Which is the best solution? And in case, how can I update a kernel or alsa? I tried to download rpm's for opensuse 10.2 of both of them but yast prevents me to install them because there are a lot conflicts. Especially I noticed that the kernel won't install because of ndiswrapper that I'm using.
Any help? I feel very frustrated;(
