[SOLVED] PulseAudio and Windows, a weird story of love

Postby mquiroga » 2017-12-23 14:50

Well, this is kind of non sense... actually is totally non sense. I have 2 drives, 1 of them has a debian installation, the other one has Windows 10. In Debian I have this problem with audio, where I constantly hear popping sounds, and when I play videos or audio (any kind, on youtube, flac, mp3), the popping sound is very annoying, so i tried a lot of things, changed frecuency daemon.conf of pulseadio, disabled time scheduling, uninstall and install pulseaudio, stop check and start pulseaudio, rebooted on every little config change, invoked lucifer and asked him to fix it, but non of this worked. Now... I thought that maybe it's a hardware problem on the motherboard, so just to be sure I booted into Windows to see if the sound quality was good, and worked perfectly. The really weird thing is that when I booted Debian, the sound started to work perfect magically, and to be sure I tried it again, shut down - boot debian with popping sound - reboot - boot windows - reboot - boot debian with perfect audio, and then I triple checked.

I'm lost here, this doesn't make sense at all.

I would appreciate some help. Thank you!!

there's so many things to clarify here.

- is windows doing a full shutdown, or its own special hibernate thingy? try both.
- would audio work flawlessly without pulseaudio?

and, most importantly:

- what sort of audio hardware and drivers do you have running there?

please answer all questions and post the output of
Code: Select all
lspci -nnk|grep -iA5 audio
and some general computer specs.

edit:
in addition, this is difficult to search the web for.
it's up to you to formulate a few dozen search terms that maybe help you to find some relevant info.

1) I may not explained the "workflow" well. I turn on the PC, and boot the drive where debian is installed, and the audio has popping sounds, if I do nothing (reboot directly, without opening anything) and reboot into debian again, the problem persists. If I reboot the PC, and boot into the Windows drive and do the same (reboot directly without opening anything and boot on debian) the sound works perfect. It's like if booting into windows it's fixing audio for debian in the other drive.
The popping sound reappear when I shutdown de PC and boot into debian next time.

2) I ran apt-get purge pulseaudio, problem still exists (maybe it's alsa?)

3) I have 2 outputs, HDMI from ASUS NVIDIA 1060 (works perfect always) and a Realtek ALC887 (on a Gigabyte AB-350M-Gaming 3 motherboard). For the videocard i installed firmware-linux, nvidia-driver, nvidia-settings and nvidia-xconfig packages.
For the motherboard I didn't found drivers.


07:00.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:10f1] (rev a1)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:85b9]
Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel
08:00.0 Non-Essential Instrumentation [1300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Device [1022:145a]
Subsystem: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Device [1022:145a]
--
09:00.3 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Device [1022:1457] <--- this is the one popping (it's popping at the moment of running the command)
Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Device [1458:a182]
Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel

I really googled this, but i don't understand the way that linux works with audio to troubleshoot this by myself. The only log that could find that would help me is syslog, but it's not a lot of info to debug the problem (for me).

Thank you!

I tryied to point you in the right direction here:
Capitain_Jack wrote:This "sounds" like a bitrate and resample problem, what configs you are using? High configuration can lead to this kind of problem, this may point you into the solution:
http://www.overclock.net/a/how-to-get-the-best-sound-with-and-properly-configure-pulseaudio


But here it goes a more detailed explain (made at facebook Debian page):
The thing is, your audio is not being properly or with quality being re-sampled. I guess enabling only a good re-sampler it's ok
in order to make it so, uncoment:
allow-module-loading = yes
resample-method = speex-float-1
avoid-resampling = false

And change the resample-method to a better one. Here it is a list:
https://linux.die.net/man/5/pulse-daemon.conf

The resample method is more of a user decision, depending on hardware, because a very high quality resampler will use more CPU.
The original one is ok, only need to change it's number from 1 to 3 (value 1 to 5, 5 is best quality) or change it to "src-sinc-best-quality" if you really want quality and have good hardware.
Another important thing I didn't mentioned is the bit rate and format, I would recommend "default-sample-rate=48000" for the bit rate, and "default-sample-format=s24le" for the sample format, so you have what windows call "DVD quality" audio.

Need to install libsamplerate.

That didn't worked, but I found that you can modify log level. This is what happen when I hear the pop sound

As you can see, pulseaudio detects a random jack connection, configure the jack and deactivates it to activate the line out again. Again, when I restart, boot windows, restart, boot debian, this problem disappear and I see the line out output working ok.

Than my guess is the automatic detection is in some trouble, maybe disable it?

Well, I kinda solved it. That didn't work, but disabling auto-mute in alsamixer makes that when the jack is detected do not mute the line out, so, the error persists but has no practical effect. It's so weird, in the config I see how line out changes the name to headphone and goes back to line out in less than a second (at the same time that I see the log that I mentioned before).

Anyways, it does not bother me anymore the popping even if the error still exists... "SOLVED".

Thank you all!

Yes, for sure is an issue with the plug detection. Seen it many times. The popping was from mute unmute than!? Nice it's "workarrounded" :D but the right thing to do is disable it, at windows also, so it don't stay on and offing all time.

Please, if you consider the topic solved, edit the first message title adding a [SOLVED] to the beginning of it, so others can benefit from your solution.

Tried this
remove the following line:
load-module module-switch-on-port-available

and it just kills audio. The other suggestions in the thread do not apply,
