No sound after upgrade

after the last updates the sound doesn’t work anymore and every time I have to run pulseaudio -k through the terminal to work, but every time I open the terminal it stops working again

I would recommend you to study the corresponding arch wiki entries:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio/Troubleshooting#Only_S.2FPDIF_output_available

I had tested some tips from the links you posted but none worked

please post system information

inxi -Fxxxx

and get ALSA information

alsa-info.sh --upload

and check for any error messages in

sudo dmesg | grep snd

Sound not working after upgrade

pulseaudio -k may appear to restart pulseaudio ok, but it will break some pulseaudio functions

  • the systemd pulseaudio.service may fail
  • some of the pulseaudio modules will not get re-loaded correctly
  • GUI controls in KDE may not work (because pulseaudio does not have module-device-manger loaded)
  • network audio device may not work (because two X11 modules are not loaded)
  • audio devices may get muted or suspended

suggest use this command to check if pulseaudio is ok

systemctl --user --full --no-pager status pulseaudio.{socket,service} 

and this to restart pulseaudio

systemctl --user restart pulseaudio

	Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Device [1458:a0b8]

a websearch based on the audio codec ID code (VendorID = 1458 ProductID = a0b8) found there is a Linux kernel patch:

[3/4] ALSA: hda - Support Gigabyte Gaming board with dual Realtek codecs - Patchwork

SND_PCI_QUIRK(0x1458, 0xa0b8, "Gigabyte AZ370-Gaming", ALC1220_FIXUP_GB_DUAL_CODECS),

to add this option to installed OS, use this command:

echo 'options snd-hda-intel model=dual-codecs' | sudo tee --append /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf ```

I ran the command on the terminal and nothing changed

did you reboot system to reload ALSA with the added modprobe option?

suggest check alsa-info.sh again. if the option has been loaded correctly it will be listed in alsa-info data - !!Modprobe options (Sound related)

and check for error messages in
systemctl --user --full --no-pager status pulseaudio.service
if the modprobe patch is in place correctly, Pulseaudio should find the ALSA Use Case Manager configuration /usr/share/alsa/ucm2/HDA-Intel/HDAudio-Gigabyte-ALC1220DualCodecs.conf

Good day,
I have the same Motherboard and same issue with sound incorrect. If this is not related, I will happily move to a new post.

Boot Live Media Sounds works correctly
Fresh install Sounds works correctly
Patch system Sound is broken.

I went back to the Live Media and rand the command “pactl list cards”

Compared the files and I see the the Intel Card is not loading everything correctly from the Motherboard.

alsa-info data is showing modprobe option has been added twice:

pulseaudio.service has different error messages
it appears the correct Use Case Manager file has still not been located
I do not understand the last 3 new error messages because they are not in english

from alsa-info data, your motherboard does not appear to be identical to OP
may be related to different firmware version (F31)
but the onboard audio codec has the same ID code - [1458:a0b8]

alsa-info data is showing 2 different modprobe options

!!Modprobe options (Sound related)

there is an ongoing bug report about problems with this audio codec on a few Ryzen motherboards
Bug 195303 - AMD HD-audio controller: Sound capture is crackled / distorted

Does anyone know how to make the systenctl --user restart pulseaudio command or the pulseaudio -k command run at system startup?

Pulseaudio configuration may have changed following update but might still retain old configuration settings
try clearing pulseaudio configuration in home folder

rename user configuration folder to ‘pulse.old’ and restart system

mv ~/.config/pulse ~/.config/pulse.old && reboot

when Pulseaudio restarts it will create new configuration files

PulseAudio/Troubleshooting - Bad configuration files - ArchWiki

EDIT: error in folder name ‘~/config’ changed to ~/.config/’

mv ~/.config/pulse ~/config/pulse.old && reboot
mv: não foi possível mover ‘/home/eduardo/.config/pulse’ para ‘/home/eduardo/config/pulse.old’: Arquivo ou diretório inexistente mv ~ / .config / pulse ~ / config / pulse.old && reboot
mv: unable to move

Cheers,
Thank you for the suggestion. Tried this and I am seeing the same issue. As for the duplicate modprobe, I was trying other options I seen around the web before I found this post. I am happy to remove it to assist in the trouble shooting. I am including a new Alsa Link as well.

You will see a new Sound card as well, I am using an old Sound Blaster so I can have optical out till this issue is resolved. I am curios about what broke since Live Media works fine with sound.

Anyone else have suggestions about this issue?

You still have the same 2 modprobe options showing as before
suggest you find where the option for ‘model=auto’ is located and delete it

grep hda /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf

If you can boot to Live ISO and sound works, suggest you get alsa-info.sh data for working audio,
and use the diff command to compare the working ALSA data to the installed ALSA data

Have you tried this script:

#!/bin/sh
sleep 5
pulseaudio -k
pulseaudio --start

Good day,
I have removed the duplicate file. Rebooted. Same issue is there. I was wanting to remove my secondary sound card when this issue creeped up. I did complete a compare of the sound card and that was posted above. Since I use this as my daily machine, I am not interested in reinstall to troubleshoot what is changing this. I have checked a few of the Diff Kernels to make sure it did not reside in them. It would appear that this is only effecting those of us on the Gigabyte board. I will wait and see if it irons out and if not, oh well. The OP has not posted anything either. I am guessing they have either moved on from Manjaro or said oh well as well.

Thank you for the advice and assistance.
