I'm having a very strange issue.I was trying to run kega fusion when I noticed there was no sound! I kept trying to fix it when I realized it might be something to do with my audio drivers.
SO I went and checked out alsa settings and found to my surprise that speaker-test doesn't work at all! No sound!


I can play music over VLC and watch youtube videos on chrome and firefox, but Kega-fusion and speaker-test both play no audio!
Keep in mind that kega fusion is an i386 package (and obviously I'm running a 64 bit OS) so maybe there's an architecture issue going on?
Then again, isn't speaker-test 64 bit?
Please, help!

I did that and that fixed pulseaudio (I can now listen to music through VLC and chrome and firefox) but kega-fusion and speaker-test are broken

Is there some way I could fix the broken symlinks? I really want sound in emulators

Maybe a downgrade of libasound2-plugins and corresponding packages to testing helps, maybe!
but be careful, read what wants to go if there are some packages that wants to go!

What do I type in to downgrade libasound plugins (or whatever) to the previous version?

Add the testing sources and install from there.
But if you don't know how to do, you should not do this. Than it is better to wait till it is fixed, be patient.
I think this is the best solution, because there are :1386 packages involved too and there it starts to get ......

manually put testing in sources  /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list

Code: [Select]
apt update; apt install -t testing libasound2/testing libasound2-plugins/testing libasound2-data/testing
if using multiarch, especially with anything wine, these will remove

Code: [Select]
libasound2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libopenal1:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libsndio7.0:i386 winetricks wine-staging wine-staging-i386:i386 winehq-staging

your best bet would be   mv /etc/alsa/conf.d{,_bak}   reboot

I have rebooted and yes, it sort of fixed the problem, but kega-fusion still doesn't work
I am loading my backup
let this be a lesson- ALWAYS keep clones of your ENTIRE linux install. You NEVER KNOW when apt full-upgrade will just RANDOMLY BREAK your favorite packages
