Ubuntu Multimedia :: Latest Update Has Trashed The Sound
Feb 16, 2011
Update manager got me to install some updates, including Linux headers. Now I have no sound. It cannot find my on board sound chipset and it's even taken away Alsamixer (no such file or directory) where I went to see if anything had become muted.I'm running 10.04 64 bit and I can't even find out how to get the grub loading screen. When I used to dual boot with Windows I could choose the previous Linux headers, now I can't even do that.
Until yesterday, my Audiophile sound card was working beautifully. I ran the latest update, and now it doesn't show up under Sound Preferences. (When I plugged in a USB headset, that appeared under Sound Preferences and worked just fine.)
I wanted to update to the latest version of flumotion, but download on their site is only available for early'er versions of Gutsy and Hardy. Who do I talk to about updating 10.04 LTS version? I want to create a streaming server for live streaming and I want to the new features and bug fixes.
After the latest round of updates approx Sep 10, sound has stopped working. (I rarely need sound for anything so it took a while to notice.) In Yast :: Hardware :: Sound it lists all of the devices that were previously defined.
- 0: SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) - 1: RS780 Azalia controller - 2: Logitech USB headset - 3: USB Audio
Yet when I go to Gnome :: Control Center :: Hardware :: Sound and select the tab Hardware, nothing is listed. I suspect this is why there is no sound. How do I go about reloading the hardware into the hardware listing?
After updating Squeeze (i386) on my Via C7 laptop with the Via Openchrome video driver vlc video ouput shows only alternating white/green grainy vertical bars. I tried changing the video output driver to x11 and sdl without success. I'll be trying to find a fix and if successful I'll post back. For the rest of you just beware of the latest upgrades. More information - My AMD/ATI desktop also running Squeeze (amd64) updated fine. It has the onboard ATI 2400 video driver.
I recently updated my computer Using 9.10 and I updated on the 14th. Before the update my sound was working great. No problems, but afterwards my sound is completely gone and under hardware when I click the sound option on the speaker icon I get nothing listed under hardware.
I am using the HP DV2810 US notebook PC. With this being listed as the audio device.
I will also list the updates from my synaptic history. I'm having to use Win7 . And i only wanted that for the few games that one run well in wine.
As the title says i updated my system which then needed a reboot. I also installed Mixxx djing software to try it out. So i thought id just restart the system. Usually when i boot into my desktop wireless automatically can connect to my router but not this time, wired only for now... i know theres tons of wireless issue threads but some more experienced users will be able to get straight to the point and run through some diagnostics with me.
I just installed the latest version of Ubuntu, and sound worked fine out of the box. I ran software update, and after the reboot, no sound. it knows there is a sound card, but no sound is coming out of any port. i done everything in the sound problems guide, and nothing worked. My soundcard is a Creative Sound Blaster Live! pci.
Yesterday I updated my ubuntu 8.04, after few months I haven't done it. Sound stops. I tried to remove pulse nothing happened. I installed Alsa mixer...nothing happens (when I open alsamixer, it is blank and if I select "Sound card properties" it crashes). I installed ac97_bus and souncore usinge modconf still no sound.
What can I do? My card is nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio,
I have no sound after upgrading to 11.04. Sound control panel and test speakers emits no sound. The new music player won't play sounds from music CDs either.I thought I had listened to a music CD since upgrading early last week, but not sure. I definitely don't have sound today even after rebooting.
I just installed 9.10 Karmic Koala and everything was kosher. I installed Amarok and the libxine plugins etc and was getting sound and able to play my mp3s, I let the update manager run and voila now without any sound. Machine is a gateway desktop using Realtek High Definition Audio.
Since about a few weeks, I have a problem with the sound on my Ubuntu Jaunty 64-bit. From any application it would simply provide noise instead of the real sound. The motherboard is working fine and providing sound under Vista. Initially, I then managed to change the settings in System-> Sound from Auto to one of the options, which provided for a decent test result. Now this is not working anymore either ... so I only get noise out of my speakers.
After running an update yesterday my sound stopped working. Here is the log that I found in synaptic.
Commit Log for Sat Feb 6 00:45:10 2010 Upgraded the following packages: devicekit-power (011-1ubuntu1) to 011-1ubuntu2 gnome-power-manager (2.28.1-0ubuntu1) to 2.28.1-0ubuntu1.3 gtk2-engines-pixbuf (2.18.3-1ubuntu2.1) to 2.18.3-1ubuntu2.2
I wasn't able to find which one of these could possibly cause the problem.
I have had such good sucess with Ubuntu that this took me by surprise. Last week after an update I was suddenly without sound in Karmic Koala. Fortunately. I also have Lucid Lynx and the sound is OK there. I really gave it a dedicated try but was unable to get any sound.
I recently did an automatic update of the Firefox web browser. Before it had sound, but now it doesn't. So I installed SeaMonkey. SeaMonkey has sound and so do all the other applications. Can't get Firefox to play sound though.
At least, I think it was the update that broke it. Anyway, my sound was working fine yesterday. I have gone through this thread to try and fix my sound, and it appears that my sound card has been uninstalled.

Last time my sound wasn't working, I was directed to this thread. The script from this thread might work again, but if it will just be erased after every update, I'd like something a bit more permanent.
I am running 10.10 on a 21.5 inch imac. I just ran some updates and rebooted, turned on rhythmbox to play some tunes and realized there is no sound. Tried ....., no yield. Tried a different user account still no sound. SO I rebooted into osx and I have sound. Its therefore a software issue for sure. I plugged in headphones and changed to the appropriate output in the settings manager, sound came out, but out of phase. What going on here? any ideas would be awesome.
After recent upgrade which contained the newer kernel ( 2.6.35-30-generic). I've started to experience problems with sound and video in programs - deadbeef and totem. Both of them dont play any sounds and video in totem is skipping every 3-4 seconds (the same applies to flash videos in browser).
As I run deadbeef from the command line I dont get any significant information. I run ubuntu 10.10 amd 64. I tried to reinstal gstreamer my programs and codecs with no luck.
ok so a while ago i updated ubuntu and the sound stopped working. i cant hear anything now not even a system beep - i tried the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide by LordRaiden but to no success. i tried alsamixer and all that to check its muted, and its not.
After I upgraded from kernel 2.6.32-31 to 2.6.32-32 and then 2.6.32-33, my sound started to lag(the lag occurred on 2.6.32-32 and stayed to 2.6.32-33, but it worked perfectly ever before). Sound does work in itself, but frequently lags and pieces that were already played before will be played again, pretty much like an old vinyl that occasionally jumps or hangs. When I start to replay something, it does not put out anything for a second or two and then starts, when I stop it will keep playing for the exact same amount of time. So, sound is synced to videos(video replay works perfectly well and without the lag). Problem is definitely related to the sound drivers, not to replay software or any buggy file. It occurs with DVDs, Flash Videos in Firefox, music in gmusicbrowser, movie files with VLC, whatever you want. I never experienced such problems with any kernel before. Although I've seen many others posting similar problems, I cannot see any valid solution for myself.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and I sure don't want to go to 10.10 for the second.
I reinstalled Alsa and Pulse, no joy. My sound card is recognized correctly by alsa and can be found in aplay -l. It's a generic onboard surround sound device, although I only use stereo channels.
