No sound and video after update to kernel 5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64

Kernel update is this a bug?

No audio and video after kernel update

#kernel-update #audio #video
Problem

No sound, video freezes. Volume set to maximum by the system (in GUI), the wrong output device for audio set to default, after restoring to the right output no more video at all…

After the recent update to kernel 5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64 everything seemed okay, but now I couldn’t play video and had no sound anymore in Firefox, in Chromium, and in Totem.
Cause

Latest Kernel update

Booted from an older kernel, and removed kernel-core-5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64 + removed kernel-devel-fc36.x86_64, updated grub, sudo dnf clean all, sudo dnf update --exclude=kernel* and now video and audio are back to normal.

It isn’t the first time something doesn’t work due to a kernel-update.

Thank you for this

That kernel version seems to have broken multiple systems. See https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2022-f4b350e22a for some details in the comments and bugzilla links.

My approach would be to do dnf remove kernel*5.19.8* which completely cleans out all remenants of the failed kernel, then attempt a new dnf upgrade to see if it was only a failure during the install or if it was actually a kernel issue.
