Hi, I’m having problem with sound every 3/4 days, I started with Pipewire only, but the volume of the sound was very low, so I tryed to add Alsa support through Garuda assistant, and for a couple of days it was ok, but then I couldn’t play any sound and the video online and didn’t not work, they stopped. The videos were working on vlc without sound. So I tryed to delete (always through G assistant) Alsa and Pipewire and install them again, after that the system was working for a couple of days, than again blocked! So I tryed avery combination with Pipewire, Alsa and pulse and always I was able to get the system work for few days, but than again it was blocked. If you can help with some ideas I’ll be glad! Thank you in advance! (I have two other computers, a desktop and a laptop where everything is working fine!)
