Hello all --

I switched to Stream yesterday hoping it would fix some issues I'd been 
having with CentOS 8.4 but alas it did not.

I started out installing 8.2, maybe kernel 4.18.0 -147?, on my laptop 
about 2 months or so ago and the sound worked fine. Now, it does not. I 
seem to be running into this problem...


I have located the rpm for this SOF package but as it states in this 
link, it can NOT be installed with my current alsa version. Thoughts?
