I lost my sound somehow and I am unable to get it back.

Code: Select all

aplay -q ~/sound/growl.wav
ALSA lib confmisc.c:768:(parse_card) cannot find card '0'
ALSA lib conf.c:4292:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such file or directory

ALSA lib pcm.c:2266:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
aplay: main:786: audio open error: No such file or directory

Code: Select all

 pulseaudio
E: [pulseaudio] module.c: Failed to load module "module-alsa-sink" (argument: "device=dmix"): initialization failed.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Module load failed.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Failed to initialize daemon.

Code: Select all

sudo /sbin/modprobe module-alsa-sink
modprobe: FATAL: Module module-alsa-sink not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.144
Help to get my sound back appreciated.

module-alsa-sink is not a kernel module, but a module for pulseaudio.

Please post the content of /etc/asound.conf and /etc/pulse/default.pa
