"We failed to reset call audio"

On latest git head. To reproduce: On PHONE A call the pinephone. Let it ring once or twice. Hang up on PHONE A. We consistently get the "We failed to reset call audio" red notification error.

Not quite sure the solution just yet, but noting this before I forget :D

I ran into this a lot while trying to rewrite sxmo_modemaudio.sh to use pactl instead of callaudiod. Here's my version for reference. It's still WIP, but I was able to get rid of that problem.


Tweaking the volume made sure that the sink/card was not suspended, which allowed the switch to happen. It's probably not the right way to fix it, but it works.

EDIT: I should note that I did this to solve both "failed to setup" and "failed to reset" errors, not sure if it'd solve your exact issue with the sequence you stated.

I got this error with a fresh install of the official build of pmOS Edge with sxmo-de-sway 1.9.0 on my OG pinephone. It happened for me by calling the pinephone from another phone, answering the call, and after 5 or 10 seconds I hung up the call on the calling phone.

I tracked this down a few days ago and sent a patch to fix it https://lists.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-devel/patches/31955

The only thing I find odd is why it (reportedly, I couldn't get it to) sometimes works. During my investigation the mic was always re-enabled by callaudiocli when disabling call audio, which caused the checks to fail.

I tried out ~mungfusensei's sxmo_modemaudio.sh, and got it working after changing _card and _sink to grep -v out the _hdmi entries, and changing "VoiceCall" to "Voice Call". (I'm using pipewire, if that's relevant).

It seemed to work fine for receiving a call, and switching back/forth between speaker phone/earpiece, but when I plugged in headphones, nothing worked any more. (it should be noted that callaudiod was still running in the background, just not sure what exactly it does anyway.)

pipewire. I have always had this message (since I started taking phone calls last month; have been using pipewire-pulse exclusively).
