Subject: [gentoo-user] KDE Plasma sound not working

1 Hello list,
3 I thought it was time to start a fresh thread, so here it is.
5 I still have no working sound. I keep thinking I've fixed the problem, only to
6 be proved wrong at the next reboot. The hardware is a USB dongle with a Unitek
7 Y-247A chipset and I'm using an ordinary 3.5mm wired connection.
9 The problem seems to be in my user account, because I can create a new user,
10 then adjust control panel values to suit, logging out and in after each
11 change. The sound keeps operating as it should - until I reboot, and then it's
12 dead.
14 By 'dead' I mean (a) it's silent, and (b) when I click the control panel
15 button to test a speaker, the icon changes colour to show it's working, but it
16 just hangs and never comes back.
18 This reminds me of another problem, in which Konsole windows are not always
19 restored after a login. This has still not been fixed; two bugs refer:
21 1.
22 2.
24 Something else also changes at the first reboot after creating a new user
25 account: a dialogue box opens requesting permission to mount a partition - but
26 that partition is one of several marked 'noauto' in fstab. (Screen shot
27 attached.)
29 What can possibly live under /home/prh and cause all this disruption? I might
30 suspect I'd been hacked, but I've rebuilt a new system several times, and I've
31 lost count of the times I've thrown away my user account and started again.

34 Regards,
35 Peter.
