Debian - soundcard dummied out

Postby cloudstrife9999 » 2019-11-02 12:12

Hello,

the sound system on my Debian OS stopped working after a reboot.

Apparently, the sound card is not recognised by alsa:

Code: Select all
sudo alsactl init
alsactl: init:1757: No soundcards found...

My kernel version is 5.3.0-1-amd64

I already tried to reinstall alsa-utils, alsa-oss, and pulseaudio. Even after a reboot, the soundcard is still dummied out.

Is there anything I can do, other than reinstall the OS?

Hello,
There's not much point in reinstalling the OS or packages unless they've been inadvertently broken.
I don't know if I can help much because I don't use ALSA but it might help others if you gave a little more information:
When you first installed the OS, did you have sound? If so, what changes did you make before there was no sound and the soundcard got "dummied out"?
I see you have kernel version is 5.3.0-1-amd64
Where did that come from? The current upgrades from the stable kernel are:
Code: Select all
linux-image-amd64 | 4.19+105+deb10u1        | stable            | amd64
linux-image-amd64 | 5.2+107~bpo10+1         | buster-backports  | amd64
linux-image-amd64 | 5.2+107                 | testing           | amd64
linux-image-amd64 | 5.3.7-1                 | unstable          | amd64

What system is it? testing, unstable or stable?
Thanks,

I have been using the same OS (debian sid) for years, and I always install new updates regularly. It is the first time that something like that happens to me.

I know sid is unstable, and I had indeed cases when a new kernel version broke some functionalities, but I always managed to restart the system with an older kernel version. I would then wait for an update to the 'broken' packages before switching back to the new kernel.

Unfortunately now the sound card looks dummied out no matter which kernel I am using.

I noticed the sound stopped working after resuming from a 'suspended to ram' state. The card was not shown as dummied out until I performed a (clean) reboot of my laptop.

We are talking about the same kernel version. 5.3.0-1 is part of the name, while the proper version number is 5.3.7-1. See https://packages.debian.org/sid/linux-image-amd64 for reference.

You may need to add your user to the audio group again:
# adduser youruser audio
changing youruser for your user name of course.
And restart it.

I have already done it (including the reboot). Sadly It did not make any difference.
