Hi Joshua, and list...

I got the non-workng sound driver for Intel HDA fixed with my kernel 

After removing the extra kernel flag i915_alpha from my command line

(see instructions when this module really was alpha --


I used the instructions given by

Syaifur Rizal <https://ask.fedoraproject.org/u/oprizal>

in this post...


I had a feeling I needed a modprobe.d entry but I didn't know what the 
syntax would be.

In any case, posting more info in case anyone needs it.
