Soundcards missing after December update

Hi all,

Since the December update, my soundcards are missing in alsa:

$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:270: no soundcards found...

Sound within OSMC works just fine, indicating that nothing’s actually broken. But raspotify can no longer play audio.

Extra information:

  • I have OSMC set to output audio through HDMI (i’ve tested this on HDMI+Analog too)
  • I have hdmi_ignore_edid_audio=1 set in /boot/config.txt to force raspotify to use the AUX output (which I also have removed and rebooted to test; didn’t work)

Sound via OSMC won’t use ALSA
Sounds like a potential kernel module mismatch or incomplete update; but hard to speculate without logs.

Which logs would you like to see?

Full set, as usual.

“potential kernel module mismatch or incomplete update” gave me the idea to reinstall the latest kernel. After running apt install --reinstall rbp2-image-4.14.78-4-osmc the soundcard was recognised again. Thank for the final pointer in the right direction, @sam_nazarko - just what I needed :slight_smile:
