Dev/dsp failed to open sound device

I don’t here any sound. My sound card is onboard intel chip and the drive
(snd_sof_pci_intel_cnl) is loaded and seems to be correct. What can I do?


@unass Hi, is the sof-firmware package installed?

The firmware is installed. In addition to my question: I also get a pulse audio failure.
The connection is refused. But the reasons for both failures can be different.


What is the result of

inxi -Axxx

If inxi is not installed on your system you can install it (as “root” in a terminal)

zypper in inxi

To make sure you got the latest version do

inxi -U

Die neueste Version von inxi ist installiert gem. deiner Aweisungen.

inxi -Axxx gibt:

Device-1: Intel Comet Lake PCH cAVS vendor: Gigabyte driver: snd_hda_intel
v: kernel bus-ID: 00:1f.3 chip-ID: 8086:06c8 class-ID: 0403
Sound API: ALSA v: k5.14.21-150400.24.46-default running: yes
Sound Server-1: PulseAudio v: 15.0 running: yes
Sound Server-2: PipeWire v: 0.3.49 running: yes

Er sagt zwar PulseAudio is running aber ich habe da meine Zweifel.


Before posting you should make sure in which language you want support. You posted your question in the english subforum, so you should stick to this language. Some helpers use a translator and/or are multilingual but it is recommended to place your request in the correct subforum and prevent mixing languages…

Nur so als Tipp an die Neuen :wink:
