Linux on Chuwi GemiBook

Where can I check it?

Just basic device manager. Just verify it does have drivers loaded (Windows didn’t have drivers via Windows update for this sound card last time I reinstalled Windows, but that was like 2 Windows versions ago) and not !'s on the hardware.

I have same issue on my herobook air ( audio system only sees HDMI output … headphone and integrated speaker are unavailable …) …

I am wondering if somebody has tried to build kernel with newer Sound Open Firmware ( Set up a Ktest-based environment — SOF Project 0.1 documentation ) as indicated in the pull request ( Add APL/GLK support for ES8336 codec (Chuwi Hi10x support) by plbossart · Pull Request #2962 · thesofproject/linux · GitHub ) and if that solved the issue ??

Thanks !

PS : jbernardo has put some good info in the MX Linux forum : No analog audio with intel SST - Page 3 - MX Linux Forum

I have a little bit technical information about Linux Mint.

confirmed newest kernel and sof firmware working with local speaker and ES8336 : [BUG] ESSX 8336 No local devices (speakers/headphones) on N4120 tablet (Chuwi Hi10X) · Issue #2955 · thesofproject/linux · GitHub … I am going to try to compile it also following Set up a Ktest-based environment — SOF Project 0.1 documentation but it’s maybe not so easy …

PS : I compiled the 5.16 git kernel and then recompiled my wifi module ( HeroBook Air : Realtek 8723DU wifi card kernel module compilation on linux - next : audio & microphone? ) but the wifi module doesnt work (network commands hang … see network commands hangs with kernel 5.16git · Issue #11 · lwfinger/rtl8723du · GitHub ) … also touchpad doesn’t work anymore … and alsamixer tells me “cannot open mixer: No such file or directory” …
… so I guess I need to wait for somebody a little more knowledgeable than me to compile it …

PS : found a hack to get es8336 working : [HACK][DO NOT MERGE] es8336 support by plbossart · Pull Request #3107 · thesofproject/linux · GitHub (always in the same discussion : [BUG] ESSX 8336 No local devices (speakers/headphones) on N4120 tablet (Chuwi Hi10X) · Issue #2955 · thesofproject/linux · GitHub ), someone kindly put some instructions here : Teclast F5 onboard sound support for NixOS · GitHub
