[SOLVED] No Sound card found in fresh Arch installation

I have a fresh installation of arch on my T14 but I can not make the sound work. Here are some things my system says:

lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "Audio"

00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Device 02c8 (prog-if 80)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 22b1
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
        Memory at e33bc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Memory at e3000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: sof-audio-pci
        Kernel modules: snd_hda_intel, snd_soc_skl, snd_sof_pci

00:1f.4 SMBus: Intel Corporation Device 02a3
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 22b1
        Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 16
        Memory at e33c7000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
        I/O ports at efa0 [size=32]

I have installed

alsa-utils

and

pulseaudio

I also tried to load the appropriate Kernel module but I am no expert here:

sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel

But Somehow they dont pick up on the sound card:

aplay -l
aplay: device_list:274: no soundcards found...
amixer
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory

Trying to address some card with number N also does not work

amixer -c N
Invalid card number.

Even resetting things as suggested here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=235291 only results in

sudo alsactl init
alsactl: init:1759: No soundcards found...

Here is some more output

    snoop               = "-1"

  Sections:

This does not yield any output:

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*

In this Arch setup I followed the LVM on LUKS encryption scheme in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm … VM_on_LUKS. Maybe this has something do to with the problem? I have not had this problem before on an Arch installation on a different device where I did not encrypt the filesystem.

Thank you for you help!

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound card found in fresh Arch installation

install the sof-firmware and alsa-ucm-conf package and reboot. Should that not suffice you can enforce the older codec implementation by setting /etc/modprobe.d/dsp.conf

options snd_intel_dspcfg dsp_driver=1

but that isn't quite guaranteed to be  maintained further for new chipsets, sof-firmware and alsa-ucm-conf are the newer, more future-proof standards, so only do that if sof-firmware doesn't work.

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound card found in fresh Arch installation

Thanks. the sof-firmware has done the trick. However I still dont hear anything when running e.g.

sudo aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono

Using alsamixer I made sure, that the master and speaker Volume is not set to 0. Any advice?

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound card found in fresh Arch installation

depends, what do you have available now?

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
aplay -lL
amixer -c0

also don't run things that aren't necessary to be ran with sudo with sudo. There should never be a reason to do sudo aplay and you shouldn't get into the habit of trying to sledgehammer things by prepending them with sudo

note taken.

This is what I get now

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound card found in fresh Arch installation

Turns out I just forgot to unmute the channels:

amixer sset Master unmute
amixer sset Speaker unmute
amixer sset Headphone unmute

Thanks again for you help V1del!
