[3.0.3 Hossa/Jolla1 BUG] pactl set-sink-volume / speaker volume

The standard output volume of the Jolla1 phone always was low. Therefore I set

pactl set-sink-volume 1 140%

without any problems until now. With 3.0.3 Hossa I get following error on stdout:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ LANG=C pactl set-sink-volume 1 140%
shared memfd open() failed: Function not implemented

Any hints about this?

same here (j1), but volume is changed nonetheless:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$  pactl set-sink-volume 1 150%
shared memfd open() failed: Die angeforderte Funktion ist nicht implementiert
[nemo@Sailfish ~]$  pactl list sinks  
shared memfd open() failed: Die angeforderte Funktion ist nicht implementiert

are you sure it was pactl you used?, maybe something changed?,.....I know I've covered this somewhere here on TJC, I just can't find it.

I've just pulled some notes and found the following, which i quickly tried on my Jolla1 and it works a treat;

pacmd set-sink-volume 1 65536 (100% default max volume)


pacmd set-sink-volume 1 98304 (150% volume)
