My speakers started making an electrical noise with every sound when I changed to 5.10 a few days ago. I have since switched back to 5.9, which fixes the problem.
I’m not sure what the correct term is, but it’s the sound a speaker sometimes makes when it is on, and the amplifier (in this case a computer sound adaptor) is turned on. I’ve noticed it previously on startup.
With kernel 5.10, every sound is proceed by that pop, unless there has been continued sound in the meantime, like music playing. It seems like the sound adaptor is turned off when not in use, which causes that particular sound when it is turned on to produce a sound.
Does anyone have the same experience? How and where should I report this for further investigation and potential fix?
