In older systems, sound would only be able to be played from one source. Then Alsa became able to mix. Then pulse became a layer on top so you didn't have to have compatibility for each sound output type.

What does the sound system settings look like?
Its runs fine before the update, I've use Solus nearly a year now.
The sound system setting only show a "Dummy Output" as a available device for sound output.
For info, my inxi -A says:
Audio: Card Intel 6 Series/C200 Series Family High Definition Audio Controller
driver: snd_hda_intel
Sound: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture v: k4.9.26-25.lts

aplay -l :

This happened after update, and i found same problem on some other distro.
I think I'll just wait next update.
Thanks, sunnyfluk.
Try running this to ensure all packages are installed correctly (it will reinstall ones that aren't).

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg check | grep Broken | awk '{print $4}' | xargs sudo eopkg it --reinstall

Done it, nothing change. Problably the kernel. Guess i'll wait the next update.
I checked the pacmd list-cards, no card found. And only "dummy output" in pacmd list-sinks.
can i install older kernel on solus? Just to be sure..

You could boot an old ISO (I think 2017.01.01 was a 4.8 kernel). The kernels still provided by the repo are pretty much all the same version

I was wondering if there was ever any resolution on this besides booting into an older kernel. I had this same problem and when I did a reboot the problem seemed to resolve itself. However, I realize that this might be a temp solution and I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem and what they did to fix it. Any suggestions would be fantastic since I use this computer for work.

Bumping this, same problem here, happened after leaving laptop with open lid so it went into "automatic suspend" while Youtube was opened in the background.

After waking it up, I get this:

A reboot solves the problem...

Yes does seem to exactly like my condition. If I can help test this, please let me know, I will try to reproduce it.

The best is to subscribe to the task on the bug tracker (the link I posted), so you'll get notified about updates.
