Sound not working

Post#1 by M. Eerie » 10 Feb 2018, 08:38

Can't get sound working. I've seen http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... lsa#p61806 that changing preferences from pulseaudio to alsa works, but no luck for me.

Any advice?

Cheers!

I think I got it

Does it work for you?

I've tried to overwrite that package, but "errors ocurred"

Sound not working

Post#3 by ncmprhnsbl » 11 Feb 2018, 02:14

the firmware files in the alsa-firmware package are already in 000-kernel module(but not as a package, hence the 'exists in filesystem' messages)
and shouldn't be necessary, i think..
have you tried? : opening alsamixer (either via volume-icon(rightclick) or terminal)
1. is the 'master channel' muted(MM)? (m key to unmute)
2. is the correct hardware(sound card) selected (F6 to change) you generally don't want to use anything with HDMI in it)

That make sense. I'd swear it worked before. Maybe with a previous kernel. (Using 4.14.16)

1. Yes I've tried. That trick remembers me of the old days with XFCE. (Also icons not keeping position in desktop, mixed cursor theme and other minor glitches)
2. I'm trying just the opposite --> Selecting HDMI Intel card. :o

Will do as you recommend.

Many thanks

yaourt -Syy alsa-firmware

With arch linux do not use partial updates:
...partial upgrades are not supported. Do not use pacman -Sy package or any equivalent such as pacman -Sy followed by pacman -S package. Always upgrade (with pacman -Syu) before installing a package...
pacman -Syu
pacman -Syyu (after a pacnew list new mirrors )
pacman -S <package name>

remember this is only true if you are using the changes cheatcode..
eg. if you update base packages live and then install something(and make a module) that depends on those updated packages and then reboot, those correct versions aren't there..
pacman -S will pull in the required dep(versions) anyhow, as will pman -S ..
you can also do pman -Syu which will make a module of the updated packages..
but this can get messy when there's: changes in the filesystem, package removals/replacements etc...
