Microphone not setected/working on alpine Linux

#1 Post by gigaturbo » Mon Jun 20, 2022 10:05 am

I've got a X13 AMD ThinkPad, microphone was working with Windows but now I installed Alpine Linux I can have it working. I installed ALSA, pipewire, sof-firmware and audio playback is working well but not the microphone. I've tried many things from different forums : changing kernel drivers, changing ALSA config, unmuting everything and putting the vol to maximum, etc.

I can't even figure out where the problem comes from and don't know what to log to have a clue of what is happening, do you have similar issues ?

Not sure what your experience level is, but maybe try a liveUSB of one of the more noob-friendly distros and see if the microphone works there.

X201 running Debian
