Audio broken on current builds (23.02 Jammy)


Recommended Posts

armbianmonitor output: http://ix.io/4s3z


I'm testing Armbian 23.02 Jammy on a Rock Pi S with its matching "PoE HAT" (which provides a 3.5mm headphone jack).

No sound cards are available despite the device tree evidently containing sound devices/codecs [1, 2].


aplay output:

rockpi-s:~:% aplay -l
aplay: device_list:274: no soundcards found...


The armbianmonitor/dmesg output contains the following suspicious lines:

[   24.551148] platform acodec-sound: deferred probe pending
[   24.551191] platform sound: deferred probe pending


Digging into this a bit further, I found this

root@rockpi-s:/home/dale# cat /sys/kernel/debug/devices_deferred
acodec-sound    asoc-simple-card: parse error
sound   asoc-simple-card: parse error


If I were to guess, it looks like a devicetree issue, but unfortunately I have no idea how to debug devicetree issues.

If anyone can provide any pointers on how to capture more detailed devicetree logs to try and figure out this "parse error", I'd appreciate it.

I will message you with a link to the image I'd like you to test with your PoE HAT.

Once you confirm the fix, I'll get it incorporated into the standard Rock Pi-S images.

( [Thought I'd be able to build the test image this weekend, but the weather here got too nice to stay inside. 🙂

@brentr, I am NOT using any HATs - just the audio output on the board itself - and I too, don't see any audio devices.

 I installed Armbian 23.02 Bullseye from https://www.armbian.com/rockpi-s, and ran "apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade".

unameLinux rockpi-s 6.1.11-rockchip64 #23.02.2 SMP PREEMPT Sat Feb 18 00:08:25 UTC 2023 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Any help is appreciated!

This was fixed https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/5088

  • built jammy image with patched 6.1.125 kernel verified /dev/snd/ nodes returned
  • Sent patched image to the user who had the audio HAT for the RockPi-S
  • He verified that audio (output at least) now works.

Build from sources, try automated community builds or wait few weeks for release,

when the official Armbian will include these changes?
