Ubuntu boot error: ASoC: error at snd_soc_dai_startup on fef05700.hdmi: -19

Thu Sep 16, 2021 7:34 pm

Hello!

Iv'e reinstalled Ubuntu latest Ubuntu with Desktop twice now and both times the same things happened.
It ran fine in the session following install (with no reboot inbetween). First time rebooting and I couldn't get back up. (but I think with different error messages to this)
Now I was able to install, then reboot and run ok once. But now when trying to boot up again I get this error message,

Code: Select all

ASoC: error at snd_soc_dai_startup on fef05700.hdmi: -19
Mine is an RPi4b.

I read some comment saying it might be because of non-existing audio on the monitor but Iv'e successfully passed audio from HDMI->3.5mmjack out from the monitor under Raspbian.

Any ideas why Ubuntu doesn't want to boot up here?
(The Pi+monitor work fine with Raspberry OS)

Cheers!

I see some recent and some threads a few months old with people mentioning the same error messages.
Often it leads to discussions involving Kodi.
Seems to be some audio+hdmi related kernel thing?

Here's a recent and similar chat,
https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/4575

When I get time tonight I'll try and install an older Ubuntu image and see if it's the same or not.

So I installed an older Ubuntu Mate 20.04.3 that also has a older Kernel, 5.4.
This worked fine and didn't throw a fit after reboots like the main Ubuntu.
The problem Ubuntu was the current one on their download page, 21.04 which iirc was Kernel 5.11.

But I will need the dma-buf kernel updates that don't seem be be in 5.4 so will have to bump that up.
So it'll be interesting to see if I get the boot breakage back then.

You really need to post this on the Ubuntu forums at: https://ubuntuforums.org/ or Ubuntu Stack Exchange at: https://askubuntu.com/ because otherwise nobody who can fix this will see this.

Ok I'll try one of those.
I thought this was a general raspberry kernel thing maybe so was worth checking here.

I also encountered this problem when I tried sudo apt-get upgrade

Return to “Ubuntu”
