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.
