• [?]Are Realtek Audio Drivers for Linux available for use

    The Team Debian-Laptop,

    My dear illustrious Team Leaders,

    Good morning.

    Model (India): Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15ISK 80XH01FKIN 15.6-inch Laptop
    (6th Gen Core i3-6006U/4GB/2TB/Integrated Graphics), Platinum Grey

    The OSes are Debian (Stretch) 9.11.0 Lxde and Knoppix 8.6.0, in 64-bit operation.

    All details/specifications of my used Lenovo laptop are also in the
    Debian Forums post (to avoid clutter and maintain centralised notes).


    I am searching for Realtek audio drivers for Linux for the Hardware
    details: "Lenovo ideapad 320-15ISK" LNVNB161216, and "Realtek Audio_6.0.1.8652.A.",otherwise, I am afraid that the audio won't be
    able to operate in duplex mode, i.e., won't record audio while playing

    I have posted the topic in Debian Forum here: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=149074, but as said
    earlier too, it is difficult to find solution in the Debian forum.

    I assure you that, as always, I shall post a [Solved] reply in the
    Debian Forums at the end of this experience for future users.

    What does aplay -l show? That should show what realtek chip alsa has

    Also look in /proc/asound/ and in the cardn/ subdirectories.

    If you use the alsa plughw device, that ought to handle any mismatch
    between the frequencies supported by the hardware and frequencies
    requested by software. But perhaps that is not you problem: I have lost
    the original post.

    If you think it is an ALSA driver problem (unlikely), then run
    alsa-info which is in alsa-utils. That should collect comprehensive
    information about your system. If you still think that there is a driver problem, then you might report to to the alsa developers' list: you will
    be expected to append the result of alsa-info.sh to any report.


    PS. Best to remove any pulseaudio when trying to sort of audio problems.
