    No Sound After Updates

    I just rebooted my raring desktop, after a week or so... to find that there's no sound whatsoever. The sound app doesn't show my card, though it's there when I lspci.

    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller

    I even plugged in a USB sound adapter, which works fine with my laptop running precise, and get nothing.

    So, I'm just wondering: Is anyone else currently seeing this problem, or have I discovered new breakage? After everything's been great for the last couple of years, I thought our sound problems were a distant memory.

    Yep same here. No device listed in sound gui. Always seems to happen early on on the cycle.

    Ahhh... great! Err... I mean: Sorry you're having the same problem, but at the same time I'm glad it's not unique to me so that I don't have to go into the low-level troubleshooting.

    If it's really that prevalent, I'm sure they'll revert the breakage - or push through it - soon.

    Thanks for the sanity check!

    no issue here on i386; is it a fresh daily install ? Maybe sound settings have been mute on your side. Did you get something logged ?

    have you tried this?
    Code:
    killall pulseaudio;rm -rf ~/.pulse;rm ~/.pulse-cookie;pulsepaudio --start

    It might be wise not to advise such drastic erasure. You're not sure if someone has important settings in those folders. I would always advise creating backup before erasure. I (for sure) have files in ~/.pulse that I would not like to get erased so easily, even though i do have their backup, I hope...

    Seeing as this is a test install yes I have deleted those folders and reboot
    Device is missing sound gui.

    only file i could imaging would be a "client.conf" everything else is auto generated
    on my deskop i put a one in my skel folder to set the guest account to use hdmi
    Code:
     ls /etc/skel/.pulse/ -l
    total 0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Nov  8 16:26 client.conf -> /etc/pulse/client.conf

    Why reboot?
    Too big hammer...
    There are rare occasions when reboot is necessary and they (in my case) involve heavy lock-ups only...

    My imagination is a bit wider...
