   Yeah.. I know. fedora-devel is not a place for discussing bugs but

   As (I hope) many of You already know kernel- which was
   pushed as a security update has broken sound on many systems
   (mostly notebooks) -
   https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=477954. The reason for
   this is the new ALSA (1.0.18a).

   There are a lot of "+1"s and "me too"s in bugzilla and if we
   consider the amount of people who don't know how to report bugs,
   add those who are on New Year holidays it becomes clear that this
   affects a lot of our users.

   So users have two choices now:
   1. Have no sound.
   2. Stick with (this is not as easy as it seems cause
   the new update will be downloaded and installed automatically).

   I do understand that many developers are on holidays themselves,
   but I'm also sure this is a REAL problem which should be resolved
   So I just wanted to know what are we going to do about this.

You can try the latest alsa snapshot available in ATrpms:



It has a lot of recent fixes and it is working just fine for me and for others. I also had no sound with kernel 159, before installing this new alsa.

If you remove the rpm later, you go back to the original sound modules (nothing is overwritten).

Good luck.

Still doesn't work.

Have you rebooted?
