So i just upgraded to fedora 24 and now my motherboards soundcard is no longer being detected.


Whats strange is i believe lspci sees it.

lspci | grep audio

00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-H HD Audio (rev 31)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GM204 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)

dmesg | grep hda

[    2.886037] snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1f.3: HSW/BDW HD-audio HDMI/DP requires binding with gfx driver

Has anybody else experienced this issue? Perhaps i just need to wait for the next kernel update?

I'm also getting this problem in Fedora 24 after kernel update to 4.6.5-300. Version 4.6.4-301 still works.

Getting the same problem here. Unlike Zerion, though, booting 4.6.4-301 didn't help.

I'm also getting this problem, I suppose this affects only Skylake CPUs?

Well, i can join this group, Audio output doesn't work BUT ONLY when I plug in Headphones. Every other time is just fine.

Get a similar issue in F23 with 4.6.5, does not appear to be fixed by upgrade to 4.6.6 kernel

I was also getting this problem. The sound device did not even show up on lspci and certainly did not show up on the gnome audio settings screen. However, this problem appears to be fixed in the latest kernel update (4.6.6-300):

sudo dnf install kernel --enablerepo=updates-testing --best --allowerasing

I want to upvote this answer. I just spent a half day on this.

Will this command cause me to get the testing branch of the kernel forever or just this once?

Just this once, similarly the --disablerepo will disable the selected repos only for the current command. Btw the 4.6.6-300 kernel seems to fix the problem! Thanks very much!

Didn't work for me. Gave me quite the runaround, as I'm using proprietary video drivers, and I forgot to grab kernel-devel with the new kernel.

if this didn't work for you they just pushed a new kernel update 4.6.6 which resolves the issue sudo dnf update --refresh

I just updated the kernel and got - which doesn't fix the sound problem. How long before the updated kernel makes it to all the repositories? (using Fedora 23)

Issue still here - kernel 4.6.6-200.fc23.x86_64

Same for me.

just checked again, there is a new kernel 4.6.7 in updates-testing which fixed the problem for me.
