Pulseaudio 14.2.2 headphones jack output issue.

The installation of pulseaudio-14.1.2 release started the problem - my headphones were not getting detected. I tried downgrading pulseaudio and libpulse to 14.0.1, which was the last version, but with no luck. I had followed this thread - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=262673

I recently did an updation on Arch, and is on pulseaudio-14.2.2.
The headphones are getting detected now, however, the sound is not playing.

I understand this might be a problem of some setting, but I need a direction as to where the issue is.

Would be grateful if I am offered some help here !!

Re: Pulseaudio 14.2.2 headphones jack output issue.

Could also be a kernel regression, test linux-lts or 5.9 or so. But there also was a change in which profile files are read by pulse though I don't think anything of relevance has changed for the files being considered for a generic snd_hda_intel card.

Was the output above with the headphones plugged in? Do any of the availability states on the port level change on plugging out/in?

Re: Pulseaudio 14.2.2 headphones jack output issue.

Well, @V1del, it was.

For those who might be lost in the dark,

$ alsactl restore

did the trick.

Well, as to the internals, I am clueless.

Re: Pulseaudio 14.2.2 headphones jack output issue.

hmm, do you dual boot and not have Windows Fast Boot disabled? I've seen this break ALSA/card state before.

No. It's only bare-bone Arch.
