Description chris 2014-07-21 23:51:12 UTC
Description of problem:
In Fedora 19 my onboard analog 5.1 sound was working out of the box.
In Fedora 20 there is no sound. Except on the login screen (move the volume slider). It is the same after an upgrade from f19 as well as after a new install.
Pulseaudio is only showing a digital output and the hdmi output of my graphics card in the sources selection.
The soundchip is the onboard chip of a Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 mainboard.

A similar problem was reported here https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1046153, but i doubt that it is a kernel bug.
The only way to get at least stereo sound was to deactivate module-udev-detect
and set the sinks manually in /etc/pulse/default.pa

Here some output about my audio hardware. I don't know what is usefull or not.

Still no sound in Fedora 21 and 22

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2015-05-26 21:10:04 UTC
probably a driver issue.

Please post output of:

$ lsmod | grep snd

for bonus points, run

$ alsa-info.sh

and attach the output file , that looks something like:

(for example, for me),
Your ALSA information is in /tmp/alsa-info.txt.QeySVf7suf

(the file /tmp/alsa-info.txt.QeySVf7suf )

Comment 3 chris 2015-05-26 22:00:06 UTC
lsmod | grep snd:

output of alsa-info is added as attachment.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2015-05-26 22:08:55 UTC
OK, intel driver and hdmi output, Can you check with mixer or pavucontrol that output isn't accidentally going to the wrong output?

Which do you want, intel or hdmi ? (I assume the former)

Comment 6 chris 2015-05-26 22:35:39 UTC
I want the intel hda.
If I enter the gnome audio settings, there is only one output device listed:
digital output-s/pdif (internal device)
but this is the wrong one.
Below under profile is analog stereo sound selected, only if I delete my user's pulse config folder.
If I enter this config menu and just change anything, this option will not show up again until i delete the pulse folder. 

In Fedora 19, I had entries for my analog sound device there too.

I installed pavucontrol, there I have entries for the hdmi output of my gpu and an internal audio analog stereo.
It claims that port:lineout is unplugged.

well, at least it seems that as long as i don't touch or open any config tool, stereo/mono sound is working. And I can restore it by deleting my ~/.config/pulse folder.
