• No sound on new install

    I have a new install with no sound. Have been through many forum posts applying the suggested fixes with no joy.

    remove the folder /home/“USERNAME”/.config/pulse

    sudo pacman -S alsa-lib alsa-utils


  • After multiple reboots, sound magically appeared. I have no idea what fixed it. But this is an ongoing issue I have with Arch and arch based systems. Sound comes and goes.

  • @thebrian2008 i think this is caus of the rolling release with latest kernels, ând of caus thereis a huge amount of soundcards…

    But compared to the problems in the early 2000s … you can talk of good support today!

  • There seems to be a correlation with kernel/firmware updates.

    I am not a developer, but I wonder what codei s changed or added that would have something that was function stop functioning. And to only do it what seems to be every other month or so.

  • Bumping my own thread;

    I am facing the same issue again, with the same install of 27 days ago, less than a month. This is getting old fast.
