New hardware new luck


Well-Known Member
So I recently got a new laptop, wiped windows and installed arch on it. Had no problems except that my audio just doesn’t work, not the mic, not the speakers and not the audio jack.
I have an realtek ALC3204 in it, i searched a bit on the internet and found out that this one audio adapter is not supported by the kernel. I also found an patch for this, which didn’t work because the patch is from 2017.

inxi -Fxz gave me this:
  Device-1: Intel vendor: Dell driver: sof-audio-pci bus ID: 00:1f.3
  Sound Server: ALSA v: k5.5.5-arch1-1
The pulseaudio manager shows me this:

what can i do to get this up running?
