Re: Laggy system that freezes with frequent audio pops

Post by Pjotr »

Why did you choose zfs as filesystem, instead of the default stable and reliable ext4? On Mint and the Ubuntu that it's built on, zfs can be considered as experimental and even more or less abandoned:
https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2023/01/ubu ... ort-status

This complication is also making it more difficult to get help here; many forum helpers, including me, have no experience with zfs.

As you're a beginner, I recommend to start anew with a fresh clean installation of Mint, with the defaults. Then report back with the remaining problems that you encounter.

Your bios is not up-to-date, the current version is F57: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA ... rt-dl-bios (click downloads, scroll down to Bios and click it)
This could be causing your problem. The new version will fix some serious vulnerabilities.
I would change this first and worry less about zfs.

Just finished updating the bios. The video problem has been fixed but the audio is better but randomly spikes to full volume.

Well thats a new one for me and I dont have an immediate answer to that. Do the spikes by any chance coincide with other sound sources like system beeps or notification sounds? And are the pops and crackling gone?
Have you checked whether all audio plugs are fully inserted? (if you have an external sound system).

There are some more things I noticed in your system specs:
Device-2: AMD Family 17h HD Audio vendor: Gigabyte driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel pcie:
I find it strange that AMD uses an intel driver for the sound, but that may be completely normal. Maybe others can advise about that.
If that is normal it it may help disabling the sound power saving setting by adding this line:

Code: Select all

options snd-hda-intel power_save=0

to the file /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf
You can edit the file with:

Code: Select all

xed admin:///etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf
Memory: 15.55 GiB used: 13.98 GiB (89.9%)
Your system was using a lot of memory when you generated the system spec. Were you running something heavy at that moment?

The spikes are mostly on youtube shorts. No the popping is still there even when i'm not playing any videos. Checked and there are fully inserted.

Re: Laggy system that freezes with frequent audio pops

Could not find the file admin:///etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.con.
Somehow the f at the end disappeared, I corrected that in my post.
Try it again with the right name. If it still responds with file-not-found then use this command:

Code: Select all

sudo echo 'options snd-hda-intel power_save=0' > /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf

It is also completely normal for Nvidia to use the snd_hda_intel driver.

What are you using for sound? Speakers on your monitor, external speakers, or the Razer headset?

Is there a specific reason you are using the OEM kernel instead of the 6.5 HWE kernel?

You can install the 6.5 HWE kernel using Update Manager, but I think the OEM may be the one to boot automatically so you will need to select the HWE kernel in the Advanced Options of the grub menu.

Instructions for upgrading to the 6.5 kernel:
  • Open Update Manager.
  • Select View > Linux Kernels and click Continue.
  • Make sure 6.5 is selected on the left panel and then click the top-most option on the right panel. An "Install" button will appear.
  • Install the kernel and then reboot for it to become active.
As an FYI, the 6.5 HWE kernel is the default kernel with the Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon (Edge) Edition ISO.

Also, what is this device below? I'm asking because I'm wondering if there might be interference from something else which is connected.

HWE kernel = HardWare Enablement kernel.

I did some searches on the motherboard on this forum and not seeing others having issues. Trying some other searches now.

So the popping is like a background static noise of sorts?

Scroll down to "Bad Sound Fix Tips" on this page and see if disabling speech-dispatcher (item #4) helps with this part of the problem. I think that may be more likely your issue than item #1 (disabling the timer-based scheduling), but you can try #1 if #4 does not work.

The sound spiking issue might be something related to Youtube's transmission of sound.

You need to boot into it to make it active.

Do you normally see the grub menu when you boot? If so, you would select Advanced Options and then select the 6.5.0-28 kernel (the one without the words (recovery mode) on the line) and then it would be the Active kernel.

If you do not normally see the grub menu, repeatedly tap the escape key during boot to bring up the grub menu for an UEFI boot computer. However, sometimes it is just easier to edit the grub menu so it shows using the information in this post because the timing of tapping the key at the correct instant can be tricky.

I just tested that command on my LM20.3 install and get the same thing. Let me see if I can find the correct location because I thought I recalled someone recently making that change to fix a problem (it was causing a different problem on their computer).
