Update and no audio devices found

A couple of days ago I ran an update and after reboot no audio devices can be found. I have tried both linux-cacule kernel and the linux-lts kernel. I have rolled back and tried to update for the past few days. I am not sure what to do next.

I rolled back again, uninstalled pipe-wire, installed pulse-audio and updated. after a reboot I still have no audio devices listed in the latte dock widgets.

I rolled back again.... This time I used the garuda-assistant to reinstall all packages. Same result after boot .... No audio devices listed in the latte dock widgets (top left corner).

Did you hit then Mute button on your keyboard, perhaps? Your inxi output looks unremarkable.

The mute button is not pressed. There are no speakers or microphones listed in the latte dock.

Ever since the Jack2 pipewire-jack issues of earlier this week, there's quite a few of us with some serious audio problems.

Unfortunately, I too am experiencing this issue. Not the mute button, @c00ter :wink:
Switching to pulse-audio didn't help either.

@waeking and @zoeruda, I've been seeing a spate of posts where even newer systems have needed BIOS updates. Yours are 2019 and 2020, respectively.

And you both have NVIDIA/Intel. Anything currently going on with those combos? I have only Intel.

I'll be back online in a while. Trying to decide whether to install Barebones -23 or dr4gonized -27. Probably Barebones, then build up. Those post--installation setup scripts are sure handy-dandy.
:wink:

tried another update from my latest good rollback..... Still doesn't work. No audio devices. Are there any journals or dmesg that one would like to see?

I don't know if helps anyone troubleshooting, but I'm new to Garuda (like, today) and performed the KDE install on a Thinkpad X270 this morning. No HDMI sound (device does not show up in pavucontrol), though laptop sound worked. I actually tried the entire install a second time just to be sure. Then, I switched and installed the GNOME version (fresh iso). HDMI sound is working under GNOME (for me).

i found and updated my bios to the latest firmware (2020) on a MSI gl65-9SE and ran update on garuda again. Still no devices are listed. Rolling back....

This is a hint, I definitely think it's a KDE related issue now as my Xfce installation of Arch with pipewire is not affected. I just can't figure out which package is at fault. Tried ignoring plasma-pa, but no luck there.

Is there a way to see what was changed on which day. I think that my first failed update was on Janurary 23rd or 24th.

EDIT: Tried update this morning.... no change. Still missing audio devices.

I normally check my past updates with something like (I hope there is no typo, I'm not on the system at the moment):

cat /var/log/pacman.log | grep 2021-01-28 | egrep -i 'installed|upgraded|removed'

My log goes as far back as the 25th. I accidentally deleted my logs while trying to delete my cache.

Tried to update again today.... Still no audio devices listed. Rolled back. If I was to reinstall from scratch would I still have this issue? I really don't want to start over. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on your need for audio and the amount of time and patience you have to keep futzing around with it until it works. And I've seen very few things, other than proprietary hardware code, that can't be made to run in Linux. There are exceptions, sure, but they are rare. And just the hardware nomenclature send up a red flag to experienced users, nowadays. Linux has exceptional hardware detection, the best in the industry.

I didn't pay attention, but if yours is an older installation, the experiment might very well be worthwhile. Long story short, if you do and audio is restored, it won't be because you and others tried and failed to find a reasonable solution for your current installation. At this stage of the game, it is most probably some little stupid thing that keeps tripping up troubleshooting the problem.

A new installation might provide the solution. You'll learn from it either way. If it recurs, it might be very instructive determining if the problem originates before/after a complete post-installation update. And also, prior to running the other scripts, i.e. application installation.

But first, protect your data ten ways from sundown, 'cause...

Tried to update again today. There were 185+ updates needed to be applied. No change.... audio devices still not listed after update. Rolling back again. I think once Garuda brings out another new iso I will try and boot a usb. If there is sound then I will serisously look into doing a new install.
