PulseAudio daemon failed to start after HW upgrade
 
Hi all,

I am running Fedora 16 Verne, 3.4.9-2.fc16.x86_64.

Yesterday I've upgraded my hardware to:
Motherboard: Asus P8H77-V LE
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770

The OS booted up smoothly without issues. It seems that it has detected the needed kernel modules and I was able to play video/audio without any issues. After I've rebooted it today, my sound has stopped to work and I have the following errors generated on /var/log/messages when I attempt to play something:

Code:

Can someone please advise how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Reinstall the operating system. It's always best to do so after changing to a different motherboard.

What's the point using Linux then? Better to switch back to Windows if this is the only way:)

Anyway, thanks for your comment. I've managed to "fix this" as removing pulseaudio.

I noticed you didn't mark your thread "Solved". That's a good thing to do so others with similar issues can benefit. :)

@ SharpyWarpy,

Thanks for noticing this. I've marked it as solved now.
