No sound and video after update to kernel 5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64

Kernel update is this a bug?

No audio and video after kernel update

#kernel-update audio video

No sound, video freezes. Volume set to maximum by the system (in GUI), the wrong output device for audio set to default, after restoring to the right output no more video at all…

After the recent update to kernel 5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64 everything seemed okay, but now I couldn’t play video and had no sound anymore in Firefox, in Chromium, and in Totem.

Latest Kernel update

Booted from an older kernel, and removed kernel-core-5.19.8-200.fc36.x86_64 + removed kernel-devel-fc36.x86_64, updated grub, sudo dnf clean all, sudo dnf update --exclude=kernel* and now video and audio are back to normal.

It isn’t the first time something doesn’t work due to a kernel-update.

Remove most recent kernel and wait until the developers solve this problem before upgrading again.

As above.

Thank you for this

That kernel version seems to have broken multiple systems. See for some details in the comments and bugzilla links.

My approach would be to do dnf remove kernel*5.19.8* which completely cleans out all remanents of the failed kernel, then attempt a new dnf upgrade to see if it was only a failure during the install or if it was actually a kernel issue.

There’s no follow-up on this, I’ll move it to a generic #english category.

kernel version 5.19.14-200.fc36 did it again, breaking AMD GPU, no more video, no more sound.

I am now running the 5.19.14-300 on Fedora37 with no issues (but also no AMD). Would upgrading fix it?

Yes, upgrade to fc37 solved the problem.
