I installed F36 xfce4 spin a year ago on my MSI Prestige A11 Laptop. The initial install everything worked perfectly. One of the times I updated the system the sound quit working through the laptop speakers. Sound through the Thunderbolt 4 ports for HDMI still worked. I downgraded the pipewire packages and the sound through the laptop speakers worked again. I did a in place upgrade to Fedora 37 and everything was working. I recently did an update, 3/16/23, and now the sound doesn’t work again through my laptop speakers.
I just did an update today with no joy. I can go into PulseAudio Volume Control in settings, and its won the right device. I see the bar moving under playback but no sound.
