Description Roland 2021-07-04 15:43:23 UTC
I have a Dell Latitude 9420 which contains with a Realtek ACL711-VD audio chipset. The headphone jack works since Kernel 5.13-rc5, and the internal microphone seems to be working, too.

But the internal speakers do not. I can select them as audio devices, but they remain silent.

This looks very similar to the problems reported in bug #208555 regarding the ALC287 on new Lenovo laptops, although the initialization verbs provided there seems to not have any effect on the ACL711.

I've already tried to use a Windows VM with qemu to extract my own set of verbs (as suggested in https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208555#c205), but I failed to get the device working in Windows. The device shows an error called "failed to setdx on fw" in Windows' Device Manager.

I'm now quite sure what did the trick, but now on Ubuntu 20.04 with latest updates and mainline kernel 5.14.2 the speaker works.

Sorry, it's Ubuntu 21.04
