Built-in audio

This laptop requires firmware in order for the soundcard to work. See Advanced Linux Sound Architecture#ALSA firmware.

Blacklist the snd_hda_intel and snd_soc_skl modules.

Configure PulseAudio's to load Alsa modules with the correct device and channnel settings, by adding these two lines to /etc/pulse/default.pa:

load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:0,0 channels=4
load-module module-alsa-source device=hw:0,6 channels=4

Unmute the Master channel:

$ alsamixer -c 0

Then press m on your keyboard.

Integrated webcam

The integrated webcam needs the uvcvideo kernel module to be loaded to work. See Kernel module for module-loading instructions.
