Re: no sound from laptop speakers after kernel update.

One more request, whenever you have time. Please run this for the working kernel and any one non working kernel then paste the URLs here:

Code: Select all

curl https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/raw/master/src/utils/pa-info?inline=false | bash | nc termbin.com 9999
I diff(ed) the alsa-info outputs and found nothing that should have caused this, so maybe this new script (which includes pulseaudio stuff) will show us something useful.

I just updated to kernel 4.15.0-66 and Yippee the sound is back!!!
Thanks for all of your help MrEen :)
Just to be consistent. I have always used the following option to alsa-base.conf to get sound in LinuxMint 19.2-64 Cinnamon for my Laptop

Code: Select all

options snd-hda-intel model=acer-aspire

That's great to hear, darknido!

So glad the kernel got you both fixed!

Just as a curiosity for me, I searched the 4.15.0-66 kernel change log and found the following:
- ALSA: hda/realtek - EAPD turn on later
So the information you found on bugzilla was implemented!

I'm so glad that was the issue you both were having.

Can I see the output of dmesg | grep snd now. I'm betting it still doesn't show any speakers, but I'd like to confirm.

Yup. Still no speaker output listed. Something fishy about those computers. I wish I knew how it was actually working!

And thanks for that! :D
