Since I updated to v17 my apps are giving me alsa errors and it doesn’t look like i have a sound card anymore.
Also, boot up shows audio isn’t initializing.
I’ve re-run the sound config & made sure Alsa was installed via the software installer.
Same with apt-get.
Are you using the inbuilt RPi soundcard?
Also, please run the following:
apt-get install -y alsa-utils
Then paste results of:
cat /DietPi/config.txt | grep 'dtoverlay'
Alsa tool allready installed.
root@DietPi:~# aplay -l
aplay: device_list:268: no soundcards found…
cat: /etc/asound.conf: No such file or directory
root@DietPi:~# cat /DietPi/config.txt | grep ‘dtoverlay’

searched for the “no soundcard…” message aplay gave me and found if I added:
dtparam=audio=on to /boot/config.txt and rebooted everything worked.
Thanks for getting me that far.
I’ve not seen “dtparam=audio=on” option before, must be a new one. There’s so many undocumented options that can be used in config.txt, wish the RPi guys would list them “all”.
Thanks for letting us know
If you have some spare time, could you run the following and paste result for me please:
I just want to see if a recent kernel update has caused this on the RPi. Will also see if i can replicate this on my RPi 2.
Would interested me too.
As far as I know, it is new on: =>> 4.4 kernel
You can do a Kernel and Firmware update and test it:
K-Plan, legend as always, great find
I’ll integrate this new option into DietPi, as well as keeping /etc/modules code in there: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/327

There she is 4.4 Thanks for confirming Nitrogen.
As of v118, DietPi will also update the dtparam=audio setting accordingly, when changing soundcards.
Thanks for your acknowledgement and assistance.
