Re: No sound after kernel update to 5.4.0-40.44

[ 4.234701] Lockdown: Xorg: raw io port access is restricted; see man kernel_lockdown.7 I do not really understand these things, but I believe they can be disable by disabling Secure Boot in your BIOS.

Re: No sound after kernel update to 5.4.0-40.44

I do wonder if this might be affecting your sound instead of pulseaudio: [ 20.407259] Lockdown: systemd-logind: hibernation is restricted; see man kernel_lockdown.7 Could that mean that before that start-up, I hadn't shut down the computer; but had let it go (unintentionally, and apparently unsucce...

Re: [SOLVED] No sound after kernel update to 5.4.0-40.44

And what's the first thing I see after I boot up my computer again? The volume control panel icon x-ed out, showing the tool tip "Not connected to the PulseAudio server." Arrrgh! Tried to play a YouTube video, so as to see whether there really is no sound... and it won't even play the video! Not in ...

Re: No sound after pulseaudio, kernel updates

I'm running my machine now on kernel 5.6.0-1010-oem (which I got from here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-oem-5.6 ), and the sound is working! It seems that there was a kernel regression after 5.4.0-26 that affected this particular Lenovo Ideapad, and probably not many other computers. ...

Re: No sound after pulseaudio, kernel updates

That last command didn't do me any good. Killed the legacy driver, I guess: no sound from speakers, no configuration options in volume control.

Re: No sound after pulseaudio, kernel updates

I think the dmic_detect parameter is why it worked then broke. For that kernel, it's the wrong parameter anyway, so run this then reboot and tell me where things stand: sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-fix.conf <<<'options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1' Progress: Sound is coming from speakers!

Re: No sound after pulseaudio, kernel updates

I'm marking this discussion "Solved." I spoke too early; my sound is broken again. I applied an update that was called something like "linux image base," and that's what seemed to break it again. Went back to my system snapshot from yesterday morning, and sound then worked. Opened Update Manager. T...

Re: No sound after update to Kernel 5.4.0-40

Boot to a previous kernel and let us know where things stand. This is probably rather dumb of me, and I'm sure a quick internet search would help me: I'm not sure how to boot to a previous kernel, given that I'm working on what is still a very fresh install. I guess I could go back from 5.4.0-40 to...

[SOLVED] No sound after kernel update to 5.4.0-40.44

Hello everyone.

Re: Keyboard and mouse uncooperative at login and onwards.

I'm not sure -- the 3.16 did it for me, so you probably have a different problem. You could go with the newest of the still recommended kernels (I'm not currently on my Mint computer, so I can't check which one that is); it probably won't break anything... :wink: But I don't know what the probabilit...

Re: Keyboard and mouse uncooperative at login and onwards.

Hi vitras, what hardware are you running your keyboard and the mouse on? And what Linux kernel do you have installed? I was having a problem with my Dell Inspiron 3847 (featuring an Intel Core i5 processor) recognizing mouse and keyboard at login; upgrading the kernel from 3.13 to 3.16 solved the pr...

Me thinks it's working! I guess the key was to identify the printer by IP address, and use the correct one...
