Fedora 37, no audio jack detection after update

Hi everyone,
after the update to Fedora 37 the audio jack on my notebook is not detected anymore. I can’t use external headphone or microphone. How can I solve this?


Can you please give more info’s from which version you updated and what your environment looks like?

I updated from Fedora 36 to 37.

Gnome 43.1

My notebook is a Dell Inspiron 7548:
CPU i7-5500U
GPU Radeon R7 M265

Detected audio devices:

$ 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)

I’m having a somewhat similar issue, on Fedora 37. When my headphones are plugged in, any video played on VLC, on Firefox, on Chrome, both in a flatpak or installed as an rpm (with the exception of video calls), plays choppy or does not play at all. If I unplug the headphones, the video plays normally, plug them back in, it’s choppy or stops playing.

bash-5.2$ lspci | grep -i audio
00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Comet Lake PCH-LP cAVS

Same issue here, I guess is a kernel bug

03:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Renoir Radeon High Definition Audio Controller
03:00.5 Multimedia controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] ACP/ACP3X/ACP6x Audio Coprocessor (rev 01)
03:00.6 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Family 17h/19h HD Audio Controller

My heaphone-jack didn’t even work before the upgrade from Fedora 36 to Fedora 37 (KDE). I don’t know why it doesn’t get detected.

Are you using a Laptop? Does your Headphone have a mic? Laptops normally come with a combined connector where Microphone and Headphone are on one Jack. So you might need a Y cable to separate audio and mic ?!

Additionally, if the laptop has only one jack then the matching headphone must have the mic and be configured with the matching plug with the tip-ring-ring-shield design. A headphone with no mic only has a plug with the tip-ring-shield design and may short 2 of the pins inside the jack.

If the system has two jacks, one for mic and one for headphone then the jacks are different than with only one jack and headphone & mic on a single plug.

I’m using a desktop computer. It’s a combined jack and I’m using an external soundcard, because the internal jack doesn’t work. Additionally I’m using a headset with a detachable mic.
