After facing and resolving the sound issues after upgrade, I thought I'd share mine resolution:
I upgraded mine XBMC setup to new systemd powered initialization (following wiki instructions) and all seemed fine until I noticed XBMC made no sound.
Tried following without success:
- Downgrading some lately upgraded packages
- Rebooting with initscripts
- Searched for answers for error seen in journal:
[pulseaudio] bluetooth-util.c: org.bluez.Manager.ListAdapters() failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.TimedOut: Activation of org.bluez timed out
- Removed user from audio group as instructed in some forum post (can't seem to find page anymore)
But then noticed not even aplay -l will list devices anymore. So, tried following:
sudo usermod -aG audio xbmc
Note:: The xbmc user did not belong to audio group earlier and sound was played without issue. Now after upgrade, the audio group was required.
