Sound Disappears after DNF upgrade

Hello Fellow Fedora Users,

I have run into a snag with my system audio after recently upgrading my system to Kernel 5.5.15-200.fc31.x86_64. Sound only outputs as dummy, however, my built-in audio and sound card are listed with the lspci -nn command. I checked the alsa-info.txt and nothing regarding my devices shows up. I’m not sure why Fedora forgoes my audio after a simple update, any ideas?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I too recently had Dummy Output, but unsure exactly when this started, as my USB headset was working. Only when I tried to use the laptop away from my desk/dock did I notice this. I have now resolved my problem, perhaps it’s the same for you.

The first thing I did was look at journalctl filtering to today’s date and again to audio.

journalctl | grep "Apr 13" | grep audio

Here I saw that there was a failure to load the firmware etc. So did some research around that and found this post (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=251157). Here they mention setting a kernel parameter, which solved my problem.

Note: I am on Fedora Silverblue, so these may not apply to your setup.

Append snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 to my kernel parameters and rebooted.

rpm-ostree kargs --editor

Append snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0`

systemctl reboot

Hope this helps.

Hello and thank you for the reply,

I ran the command journalctl and here’s what I got.

I’ll take a look at the solution you provided and post my results. :slight_smile:

Hello again, I tried the solution you posted. Unfortunately it didn’t work, rpm-ostree doesn’t want to run the command instead it returns β€œerror: the system was not booted via libostree”. I appended snd_hda_intel.dmic_detect=0 to grub as suggested in the forum post (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=251157) with no luck.
