Two or three days ago I lost audio output on this up to date F12
computer. I use the audio for an alarm and to notify me of incoming
e-mail and miss having those functions.
aplay /usr/share/sounds/purple/login.wav produces no sound although
I can see a level bar in "Pulseaudio Volume Control" showing good
audio level, the Alsa settings are unchanged from what they usually
are, and I tried an earlier Kernel.
When I run:
[bobg at box6 ~]$ pulseaudio -D
E: main.c: Daemon startup failed. [perhaps 'cause it's already
Several days ago I ran "pulseaudio -k" during an episode where my
CPU usage had gone to max, I -think- that may be when I lost sound.
I don't know if the above result is meaningful?
I can run:
[bobg at box6 ~]$ pulseaudio --start
and it seems to work, there's no error message produced but still no
sound except for the level bars in the pulseaudio volume control
This is not a major problem but an annoyance since sound usually
just works and I don't know how to troubleshoot it further.
Any suggestions appreciated.
