I cannot hear the sound from the speaker. I can only hear the sound when I connect a headset to the audio jack.
I have tried to all the alsa utilities (pavucontrol) to see if anything is muted but I couldn't find anything.
I have also created a config file at /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf with the following commands:
options snd-hda-intel model=alienware
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
# u1Nb.U1J92flYfgB:Intel Corporation
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
But still I can only hear sound from the audio jack and not the speakers of the laptop.
It does seem that other distributions the solved is solved only by the above commands.
Is there anything specific to fedora?
