    Yeah, I know I shouldn't be running as root all the time. Do as I say, not as I do, right? ;-) I've set up a regular user account and I'll try it out that way.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi
    So on a reboot and as a normal user does everything start up and work? If so, then as you suspected being root is a little more restrictive...

    Well, it probably would have had I not mucked it up. While copying content from the root user profile to the new regular user profile I did something -- I'm not sure what -- that rendered the machine unusable. It just hangs at a certain point during boot leaving me with a blank screen.

    So after booting into rescue mode and trying to figure out what I had done, I decided it would just be faster to recover my critical data start over with a clean slate by reinstalling SLED 15 SP1 from scratch. That way I drop any potential baggage carried forward from all of the previous upgrades.

    Just the same, your help is very much appreciated!

    I suspect the initial problem had to do with the upgrade, either with some pre-existing issue, or something that went wrong during the upgrade. Since doing the clean install of SLED 15 SP1 I can login as a regular user and sound works just fine.

    Thanks again for all your help!
