I've been cruising the Dell subreddit, reading up on the XPS 9700 as I ordered one back in June with the intention of dual booting Windows and Manjaro, since it has two SSD drive slots. A few users there have been complaining that they can't audio working properly on the laptop. Something to do with the Realtek ALC711-GC audio controller I'm assuming. One user can get audio through Bluetooth or by connecting a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter into one of the ports. The issue was reported on multiple Linux distros as well.
Just curious if anybody here has the laptop (or a laptop with similar audio hardware (here's a link to it!)) and is not having any audio issues. Or any potential solutions for it.
I did some searching and support for the ALC711-GC audio controller was introduced to the Linux kernel as of version 5.4. I'm not sure what kernel the Reddit users were running, but they were using the latest version of Ubuntu (one also tried Manjaro), IIRC.
