do you use the hdmi part of sound or plug… could be not setup properly in pavucontrol.

in the last tab…

That is not correct according to your post.

Audio:     Device-1: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Trinity HDMI Audio driver: snd_hda_intel 
           Device-2: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] FCH Azalia driver: snd_hda_intel

Did you install pavucontrol and try to set up your audio settings?

Edit : Again too slow :wink:

Well i reboot it with endeavour usb live and sound works great.
Now i’m reinstalling base system os.
Perhaps kde and cinnamon desktops env gets wrong.
Trying to replace partition.
I’ll let you know later.

To check some issu3s is good with patience as with sound is importand. Reinstalling wont fix always. Random occcurance does not learn. But at the end we come to a solution

You’re right but i had other issues apart sound card.
Hope everything goes well after reinstall.
Still waiting end of it.
Thank you.

Ok now sound card works fine.
Have another problem: ethernet card does not.
1st install worked fine, new install it does’nt.
Get crazy

ok what is output of pacman -Qs r8168 ?

the 8169 is standard in the kernel but mayby is after install removed somehow …check if r8168 is installed…

sometimes you need 8168 and other time 8169 for other cases are :slight_smile:

but not for everyone, i think you need r8168 driver n you have to confirm with pacman -Qs r8168 .

Ok i need to try but now i’m connected with other distro.
Let u know later, thanks.

Well no wired internet connection but wifi 20 kbi/s, impossible to receive data in time.
I must leave endeavour os on my amd desktop pc but i’m testing it on my laptop lenovo Intel Core i5-8300H as it’s working perfectly with kde plasma.
Thank you anyway, see you soon.
by the way : no response asking pacman -Qs r8168.

lspci you see mostly what kinda chipset you use and on that inxi command you post… was on the asrock , i cannot tell basicly :slight_smile: but some cards need straight 8168… while other need 8169 and thats in the kernel basicly.


Please post this command.
