Description Tamás Németh 2018-03-09 07:55:35 UTC
I have a Dell Latitude E5450 laptop with the following sound hardware:

netadmin:~ # lspci | grep -i audio
00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Audio Controller (rev 09)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Wildcat Point-LP High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)

The audio driver seems to be snd_hda_intel. I run a fully up-to-date OpenSUSE Tumbleweed x86-64 system on this computer. I don't know if it's because of some recent kernel update or pulseaudio update, but anyway, I observed that I have no audio via earphones. I can hear the sound via the builtin speakers when my earphones are unplugged, but when I plug them in, the sound stops.

It's important to note that when I'm watching a youtube video in firefox with unplugged earphones, then the video immediately stops when I plug in the earphones!!! Firefox may somehow detect that it can't send the audio stream to pulseaudio anymore!

If I run pavucontrol-qt, and go to the output devices tab, and then plug in the earphones, then it tries to switch view(?) by displaying "Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please wait...", but it falls back to speakers in one or two seconds :-(

The fix should be released soon.
