Rpi3B+ Ethernet/USB issue

Postby DomieMic65 » 16 Apr 2019, 19:46

Hi to all..
I don't know if it's mentioned somewhere else but I would like to ask if there is a workaround/solution to the sound dropouts problem when using Ethernet connection and a USB DAC with 3B+.
I am using Allo Digione for the past year or so and I have no issue but I was wondering about the USB problem.
I tried a USB to Ethernet adopter but while I managed to have connection and sound it was very problematic. May be there is a driver update needed for the adopter but I don't know how to install it.

Thnx

Hi DomieMic65,
All the usb soundcard drivers are included in Linux as part of ALSA. The only way to upgrade is to upgrade the kernel. This is not recommended as it will probably break RuneAudio.
The only other good way to upgrade drivers is by upgrading the linux-firmware package, see here for details: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke ... git/about/ There is no guarantee that this will fix the problem, but it relatively safe and should eliminate some potential causes.
You can upgrade it by logging in via SSH and running this command:
Code: Select all
pacman -Sy linux-firmware
If you need more help please supply some more information, preferably your debug.

Thank you very much janui... !!!!
I did the firmware upgrade but no luck! The problem is not solved.
I will stick with my Allo Digione for time being!
