I bought the tablet Chuwi Hi10Go with N5100 CPU. I am experiencing problems with sound on any Distro. I see only Dummy/Null sound output. I have tried various recent distros:
Ubuntu 22.04 - auto rotation didn’t work, neither sound.
Manjaro with kernel 5.15 - auto-rotation (even with iio-sesnor-proxy) and sound not working.
OpenSuse tumbleweed with kernel 5.17 same.
Fedora 36 with kernel 5.17 works flawlessly even with auto rotate, but without sound!
Could anybody help/give me an advice how to get working sound on this nice tablet?
Linux is kind of crucial for me due the studies and side job I am having, also it seems working nicer than Windows on this tablet, therefore I would like to stick/stay on Linux anyway but no Sound is a blocker. I am advanced user. Thanks.
Did you Id the sound material/chipset !?

Do you need anything else?
When I run: inxy -Fxz i get
Device-1: Intel Jasper Lake HD Audio driver: sof-audio-pci-intel-icl
Sound Server-1: ALSA v: k5.17.4-1-default running: yes
Sound Server-2: PulseAudio v: 15.0 running: yes
Sound Server-3: PipeWire v: 0.3.51 running: yes
But for output I still have Dummy device and no sound.
Just in case:
Tried all the suggestions in all forums, no success but thanks for hints. Either I sell it or wait and hope for support in the newer kernel. Very disappointing Chuwi!
