Pulseaudio and sound was working perfectly well until the update of pulseaudio to version 15.

I have tried a few things but last time I touched pulseaudio, as years ago. Currently there is no sound.

if this is with openrc, check if pipewire is running - most likely the cause is that both audio servers are running
if pipewire is not running, please post pa-info output (make sure you have lsof installed, and run it from ordinary user account)

Pipewire is not installed.
Lsof is installed
The system runs openrc

Note with alsa-plugins[pulseaudio] you should not need .asoundrc anymore, please rename/move it for now.

Let's check what you have: currently your pulseaudio default output is via onboard audio card SPDIF out.

You can verify if alsa itself works: 'pasuspender -- speaker-test -D iec958:CARD=Intel,DEV=0 -t wav -c 2'
If not, please try this 'pasuspender -- speaker-test -D hw:1,1 -t wav -c 2'

If any of these two worked, please run 'speaker-test -t wav -c 2' and check with 'pactl list' that 'Sink #2' (Name: alsa_output.pci-0000_0b_00.0.iec958-stereo) changes state from current SUSPENDED to RUNNING

If nothing works, could you please check if you did kernel update as well?

.asoundrc has been removed but note that now, when I pull up alsamixer I do not get to play with the volume of pulseaudio which controls all cards.

Also note that the sound was working with .asoundrc

Another detail is that the audigy card is actually the one I always used as default.

This works but no sound, even when changing it to the audigy card.
Code:
pasuspender -- speaker-test -D iec958:CARD=Intel,DEV=0 -t wav -c 2


This works too, but no sound:
Code:
pasuspender -- speaker-test -D hw:1,1 -t wav -c 2


This also works but also no sound:
Code:
speaker-test -t wav -c 2


pactl list| grep State
Code:
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED
   State: SUSPENDED


Another thing I also noticed is that the Audigy card is not listed

pactl list| grep alsa.card_name
Code:
      alsa.card_name = "HDA NVidia"
      alsa.card_name = "HDA Intel"
      alsa.card_name = "HDA NVidia"
      alsa.card_name = "Logitech G933 Gaming Wireless H"
      alsa.card_name = "HDA Intel"
      alsa.card_name = "QuickCam Pro 9000"
      alsa.card_name = "HDA NVidia"
      alsa.card_name = "Logitech G933 Gaming Wireless H"
      alsa.card_name = "HDA Intel"
      alsa.card_name = "QuickCam Pro 9000"


However it exists:

cat /proc/asound/cards

Please have a look at your latest paste, this
Code:

Default Sink: alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.iec958-stereo

means you now have onboard intel card with SPDIF profile as default output.

Your audigy card is there, it is 'Card #4'

Please try changing desired ouput in pavucontrol output devices tab, there is 'Set as fallback' checkmark for that. If you do not want spdif on audigy, you can also change card profile in pavucontrol configuration tab to maybe 'Analog Stereo Output' or whatever fits, currently it is set to 'Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output'.

If that still does not work, please indicate how you plugged your output device (i.e. which jack, analog or spdif) and to which card, so I can provide speaker-test command line args to test alsa output with that.

The cards are not showing themselves everywhere.

I have not used pavucontrol in years but just installed it.
I also had pulsemixer working.

On pulsemixer I can see all cards but changing which one I want by default does not make them work

On pavucontrol, the only output cards listed are the intel one and the GM107 Geforce.

As for SPDIF, I haver used it anywhere.

In regards to how the cards are connected: They are not connected in any way to each other physically.

I probably lost you, please have a look at pa-info output you provided - the card is listed there.
Code:

Card #4
   Name: alsa_card.pci-0000_0b_00.0
   Driver: module-alsa-card.c
   Owner Module: 10
   Properties:
      alsa.card = "0"
      alsa.card_name = "SB Audigy 1 [SB0090]"
      alsa.long_card_name = "SB Audigy 1 [SB0090] (rev.3, serial:0x511102) at 0xe880, irq 16"
      alsa.driver_name = "snd_emu10k1"
      device.bus_path = "pci-0000:0b:00.0"
      sysfs.path = "/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:0b:00.0/sound/card0"
      device.bus = "pci"
      device.vendor.id = "1102"
      device.vendor.name = "Creative Labs"
      device.product.id = "0004"
      device.product.name = "EMU10k2/CA0100/CA0102/CA10200 [Sound Blaster Audigy Series] (SB0090 Audigy Player/Platinum (EX))"
      device.string = "0"
      device.description = "EMU10k2/CA0100/CA0102/CA10200 [Sound Blaster Audigy Series] (SB0090 Audigy Player/Platinum (EX))"
      module-udev-detect.discovered = "1"
      device.icon_name = "audio-card-pci"

Do you mean that if you run pa-info again the card is not there anymore?
Could you please post new pa-info so we can compare what's changed?

I installed pavucontrol and pavucontrol only listed me 2 cards available which were the INTEL card and the GM107 Geforce.
I have 5 audio devices.

At the same time nothing changed from pa-info output
and at the same time pulsemixer listed me 3 cards available.

Now that a few more minutes have passed and I came back to the desktop again, pavucontrol now lists me 3 output cards and the audagy card now shows up.
However it only allows me to select analog out put.

What is happening here is that several apps are not listing all my hardware sound devices consistently.

And i still have no sound.
All this is very weird and maybe has something to do with udev because there are a few other issues happening with other hardware not working well and or missing.

Even more weird is that it has been a long time since anything has been changed in this system. Only updates have been done without touching config files.
Suddenly a few things stopped working.

This looks like very slow udev event processing but I cannot guess what could be causing this.
Anyway all cards in 'pactl list' should be available in pavucontrol.

BTW do you have alsa built into kernel? This could be causing all sorts of inconsistent audio behavior due to initialization order.
If yes please try again with modular alsa, i.e. 'CONFIG_SND=m' and all sound modules below that.

As we also look into udev here, what is your udev implementation package?

Slowly all devices started to show up on pavucontrol.
All seem to be working except the wireless G993 headset. It is not listed on the output sources.

In the meantime I also did my yearly emerge -e world and -e system and some pulseaudio confids were updated such as

Code:
/etc/alsa/conf.d/50-pulseaudio.conf

This one is likely unrelated: /etc/alsa/conf.d/50-pulseaudio.conf is a configuration file adding pulseaudio i/o for alsa apps.
You seem to be using ordinary sys-fs/udev so I do not have any better idea than try looking at udev events maybe there is something holding off processing.

HeXiLeD,

What does
Code:
lspci -nnk
have to say.
What do you have in /proc/asound/devices ?
If you have several sound cards, which one do you want to use?

Pulse is a wrapper around alsa. Until alsa works, pulse cannot.

I got pulseaudio working to a certain level.

control these software if they are installed.:
Code:
    media-sound/pavucontrol - Pulseaudio Volume Control, a GTK based mixer for PulseAudio. Alternatively, media-sound/pavucontrol-qt is the Qt based version.
    media-sound/pulsemixer - CLI and curses mixer for PulseAudio
    media-sound/paprefs - PulseAudio Preferences, a configuration dialogue for PulseAudio.
    KDE's Phonon integrated PulseAudio configuration and mixing, but it is not as powerful as pavucontrol or paprefs.
    media-sound/pulseaudio-modules-bt - replacement for bluetooth USE-flag, may have better sound quality and allows for a codec selection in pavucontrol


Test with audiacity if your microphone is working : it does with me in audiacity but not with cheese app. : Mine does not work with cheese but in audiacity perfect ! (ANYONE A SOLUTION ???)
Change your frequency to 44100 fallbackt to the frequency that was default in alsa.
Check in pavucontrol, alsamixer which channels are available input/output
Check your kernelcompilation if you have the correct drivers( choose only 1 for each channel with [*]not [M], do not select drivers you do not need.
