i’ve been using Fedora for a while on different computers and luckily everything worked ootb or i could figure out how to make it work, but only for a few weeks on my new notebook, so this is my first post.
I am using Fedora 35 on a HP EliteBook x360 1030 G7 in Dual-Booot with Windows 11 Pro.
Mostly the experience is very good, but i have one issue with sound:
Under Windows the internal speakers are working both (so it isn’t a hardware problem) , but under Fedora only the left speaker is working.
When i connect headphones both channels are working. Also the microphone array is working as expected.
In Gnome Settings it is recognized as “Speaker - Comet Lake PCH-LP cAVS”.
Once it worked and i had sound on both speakers, but after the next reboot only the left speaker is working. At first i thought maybe an update has caused it to work once and another update stopped it again, but as far as i know no update happened in between.
Hi, you could check with alsamixer. Press F6 to select your appropriate sound card then press F5.
Check if your Speaker volume bar have different value (at the bottom Speaker volume bar), let say 0<>80. To make it same level, you could decrease the volume with arrow keys until all 0<>0, then raise again and it should rise both of them.
You could also check and use same method for Master or PCM (if there any).
I see now. Your device using alsa-sof-firmware. You could try to upgrade following packages sudo dnf upgrade alsa-sof-firmware alsa-ucm alsa-lib if there any upgrade packages available for your system (you could also try to reinstall those packages with sudo dnf reinstall ...).
I tried to upgrade and reinstall the packages you suggested, but it didn’t change anything.
Thank you for your patience.
When the login with Fedora account works again und Redhat Bugzilla, i will try to fill my first bug report.
But i don’t know for which package i am reporting this bug. Because of the dmesg | grep audio output
[ 22.720889] sof-audio-pci-intel-cnl 0000:00:1f.3: Firmware info: version 1:9:3-a9780
[ 22.720892] sof-audio-pci-intel-cnl 0000:00:1f.3: Firmware: ABI 3:20:0 Kernel ABI 3:18:0
[ 22.720894] sof-audio-pci-intel-cnl 0000:00:1f.3: warn: FW ABI is more recent than kernel
for me as a beginner it sounds like a firmware problem, so maybe against alsa-sof-firmware?
