I installed Clear Linux yesterday on a new Acer Swift laptop with the Intel i7-1065G7 and Iris
Plus. This light laptop should be of interest to developers who also travel. Everything I’ve
checked works except for sound.
A file on devices I printed before doing the default “descructive installation” of Clear Linux
Name Intel® Smart Sound Technology (Intel® SST)
Manufacturer Intel® Corporation
PNP Device ID INTELAUDIO\CTLR_DEV_34C8&LINKTYPE_02&DEVTYPE_01&VEN_8086&DEV_AE20&SUBSYS_102513
dmesg in Clear Linux includes:
1.180854] sof-audio-pci 0000:00:1f.3: No ASoC machine driver found - using nocodec
[ 1.181100] sof-audio-pci 0000:00:1f.3: Direct firmware load for intel/sof/sof-icl.ri failed
with error -2
[ 1.181104] sof-audio-pci 0000:00:1f.3: error: request firmware intel/sof/sof-icl.ri failed
[ 1.182531] sof-audio-pci 0000:00:1f.3: error: failed to load DSP firmware -2
[ 1.183894] sof-audio-pci 0000:00:1f.3: error: failed to probe DSP hardware!
Let me know where I might find advice with this. I’ve searched and not found much.
Any suggestions on this will be appreciated.
