Description Eric Hopper 2009-09-08 21:43:45 UTC
My sound isn't working at all after the pulseaudio and kernel upgrade.  It seems to be the kernel driver at fault.  I get a popping noise in my speaker when pulseaudio initializes it, but after that no sound.  I was getting sound just fine before.  I've played with any volume control I could find, including gst-mixer, alsamixer and others.  I've also tried playback with aplay that bypassed pulseaudio.  

Here is a dump of various bits of system information:

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2009-09-09 02:36:33 UTC
See also bug #521997 but with snd_via82xx there I still have "leftovers" of sound, not really usable, and rebooting the previous kernel restores sound to normal with all pulseaudio and alsa current updates applied.

Comment 3 Lubomir Rintel 2009-09-15 16:59:16 UTC
Please attach logs from pulseaudio (grep pulse /var/log/messages, pulseaudio -k && pulseaudio -vvv may come handy)

Comment 4 Michal Jaegermann 2009-09-18 02:38:05 UTC
Re: comment #3.
OP does not seem to be in a hurry with requested logs and I "recovered" my sound like described in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=521997#c4 (cf. also fifth comment there).  Still I tried to see what I can do.

Search for pulse in /var/log/messages does not bring anything.  For "come handy" as a user 'pulseaudio -vvv' produces only a bit of output on stderr.  OTOH when doing that from 'root' then 'pulseaudio -k' errors out with "E: main.c: Failed to kill daemon: No such process".  'pulseaudio -vvv' for root will dump quite a lot on stderr but it has to be killed because it stops with "I: alsa-sink.c: Device suspended...".

So taking into account the above and that I "fixed" my broken sound, which is using snd_via82xx and not snd_hda_intel, what do you really want to see?  My outputs from alsa-info are attached to bug #521997.

Comment 5 Eric Hopper 2009-09-18 02:46:31 UTC
I will provide the requested logs, but right now I am running an old kernel that doesn't have the problem.  I am loathe to reboot my system as I habitually have many windows up that record the state of several long-term ongoing tasks.  I will though sometime this weekend.

Log output of pulseaudio

I've now added the log output of pulseaudio started with -vvv and logging to stderr on my broken kernel.

Comment 7 Eric Hopper 2009-10-23 23:37:59 UTC
I provided the requested logs, but the most recent kernel I downloaded still didn't have a fix for this.  Is anybody looking into this?

Comment 8 Pierre Blavy 2009-11-21 00:57:15 UTC
I get no sound with the same card. LSPCI do not says the same thing as KDE device manadger

KDE device manadger see this device as an ethernet card.

I still have this problem with kernel- so I'm stuck back at kernel- which is the last kernel that worked.

Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 10:14:45 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 13 Eric Hopper 2010-05-11 07:09:25 UTC
The Beta of Fedora 13 does not have this bug.  If the resolution is "Upgrade to a new release" then the bug can be closed.

Comment 14 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 14:32:52 UTC
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
