No sound fix
When sound doesn't work in chrome with HTML5 or in flash videos then it can be some of outdated or damaged files that causes the problem. The
pacman -Syyu doesn't help always but it is possible to use a dirty method to updated or reinstall files.
A dirty method to fix problems with packages that might help to fix a numerous of other problems too:
pacman -Qq > /tmp/filenames.list while read FileNames;do pacman --noconfirm -S $FileNames;done < /tmp/filenames.list; reboot
Or just use this to reinstall all packages :
pacman -Qenq | pacman -S -
- If you have installed packages from AUR then you might have problems that will prevent re-installation.
- To avoid that kind of troubles you need to create a separate cache for AUR packages,e.g.
/home/username/AUR/pkgs-aur, and add it to
[custom] #SigLevel = Optional TrustAll SigLevel = TrustAll #Server = file:///home/custompkgs Server = file:///home/username/AUR/pkgs-aur
- You must always create a custom repository for AUR package files and use the
repo-add -n /home/username/AUR/pkgs-aur/custom.db.tar /home/usernamer/AUR/pkgs-aur/*.xzto update it.
