Pop! _OS, Intel sound card does not work after updating Linux kernel

Share on:

If your intel sound card does not work after updating Linux kernel you can revert back the kernel.

In my case, the sound card stopped working after installation the kernel linux-image-5.3.0-7642-generic

These steps can help you to revert back the kernel

0) check your current kernel version

1uname -a

1) check the list of available kernels

1ls /boot

So, my previous kernel is linux-image-5.3.0-7625-generic

2) let’s revert back the previous kernel

1sudo kernelstub -v -o "quiet loglevel=0 systemd.show_status=false splash" -k /boot/vmlinuz-5.3.0-7625-generic -i /boot/initrd.img-5.3.0-7625-generic

1sudo reboot

3) chek your kernel version again

1uname -a

It should be your previous kernel.
After that, the sound card should work.

I hope this problem will be fixed in the next kernel version.
