Hello Everyone, I am new here. I tried Parrot and I think it’s the best linux distribution for my laptop. however, I had to go back in fedora, because I have no sound, could you fix it, I have made numerous test this week because we can’t go out, but my soundcard isn’t working well.
I made an inxi - A on fedora so you can have the fix maybe for parrot to be integrated.
Everything else is working on Parrot natively except Bluetooth, Soundcard for my laptop, so if you can just get this working for me, it would be the best. As many people here in France have this laptop. As well as that parrot mouse track-pad is better recognize, so do not use the one from fedora please. Just in case, the battery charge doesn’t show as well, in fedora is ok too… So maybe you can get the pilot from fedora and transfer it to parrot. Soundcard, bluetooth, and battery charge… Thank you.
To make a long story short, could you take the Soundcard pilot, Bluetooth pilot and battery charge pilot of Fedora and transfer it to Parrot?
Just in case, you can use the pilot from windows 10? Here are the pilots.
The sound pilot on windows is : [ES8316AudCodec Driver x86 for RS1.zip]
The Bluetooth pilot on windows is:
Parrot is not based on or at all related to Fedora. As mentioned, Parrot is based on Debian. They are different. The commands may be different. Your hardware should be identifiable if you run the commands as shown on Parrot (even if driver is not installed yet).
Deleted massive long bios posts from Fedora output (did not want partial failed command output for Fedora- did not contain any soundcard info because you did not include the grep pipe I included- making the posts bulky & irrelevant). Grep piping was needed to isolate soundcard info.
(Next time please make sure to use pastebin for massive output like that- otherwise it makes entire forum a mess)
If goal is getting sound to work on Parrot, most important output in the end will come from Parrot (otherwise how will we know if you have the driver installed or if device is detected on Parrot).
As @I_Have_Treasure mentioned, copy/paste and run this command (one line/command) so we can better help you :
Thank you, I just don’t know how to build and install the kernel from the link you gave me. Maybe you have some example on how to do it?
I don’t even understand the source tarball you mention, I may need a step by step explanation on this, it’s getting hard to install sound on parrot. I thought it would have been easier just to transfer things from Fedora to Parrot, but it cannot be. What about the Soundcard file from windows10? Is there any way to put this pilot directly?
Thank you, I just have limited knowledge of Linux, thanks for your help again.
cd $(mktemp -d) &&
git clone https://github.com/yangxiaohua1977/sound &&
cd sound &&
cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config &&
make menuconfig &&
sudo make -j 4 &&
sudo make modules_install -j 4 &&
sudo make install -j 4 &&
sudo update-grub &&
In menuconfig you can simply go to save and exit.
This script will install 4.10rc5 kernel with sound driver modifications.
After execution of this script system will reboot and you should load to a new kernel and test the sound.
