LOL. You never wasted any of my time. I learn by helping others, so it's all good. :D

Yes, you have the right spot for the edit, but we need to change the command a little bit, as the interpreter is too basic to handle it properly. I'll also include a short timer, just to be safe. You can play with it if you like and find what works best. This is the command for that location:

Code: Select all

bash -c "sleep 5 && amixer -c1 set Headphone toggle && amixer -c1 set Speaker toggle"
I like to thank you very much for your engagement and big help. I get the start jingle and the sound of silence from S&G sounds real well in stereo.
Have a good weekend.

You're most welcome. I wish I could help more, but those SoC sound cards are just too foreign to me.

behold, the mighty Cherry Trail Intel Atom® x5-Z8350 Processor 4 processors 4 threads 2M Cache, 1.44 up to 1.92 GHz

it is designed to be in tiny tablets, so it has ample space in a 15" Ultrabook

It is amazing isnt it?
It is smaller than the SOC from my new Android TV boxes, It comes with USB3 and 2, SD card reader, mini HDMI stereo headphone plug, good sound and a good full HD anti glare screen. Just for fun good 3 years ago I was looking what is the cheapest Windows 10 PC with a 15" screen. For 150 Euro I found it in China. it is a TBAO brand what came with 1700 gram weight. They mounted a 250 gram metal plate under the battery to give it a more solid feeling and keep it from tipping over when the screen is tilted backwards. The first thing was to open up the PC and remove the metal plate. Now it is a bit over 1400 gram around 3 pounds what is good for something what sits on your lap. And it does not tip over since they "mounted" a smaller battery further down.
by the way, this is how it looked in the test review I got some info from, can you spot the differences to mine?
oh this amazing craftsmanship. But the whole case is sturdy and in a dark blue all over.

sorry I nosed around the internet after I resiscovered the name and model of the PC and found that there were a lot of people with the same problem on Atom SOC with this sound chip.
One post was kind of interesting , please have a look if you understand if this make sense
from the ubuntu forum

Hey Guys Problem is solved. So i made a script that you guys can try if you have the es8316 on linux.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bIJ...ew?usp=sharing
and just execute it and there audio is working.

this is the code

Code: Select all

Re: [SOLVED] Workaround if no speaker sound for Everest ES8316 SoC and maybe others

Post by MrEen »

Okay, I perused what you posted above, and it's quite difficult to understand everything that's happening with it grabbing sources from multiple places. It's possible this is older info that may not apply any longer, but it's also possible this still works.

To execute the script as root simply run sudo bash /path/to/script. For example if the file is named fix8813.sh and is in a subdirectory of your Downloads folder called 8813, then sudo bash ~/Downloads/8813/fix8813.sh would be the command.

I hope I got that right.

I'd caution to either have good backups ready, or be prepared to reinstall the OS.

Good luck! :D

I should add, I have read many of Shuncey's posts on the Ubuntu forum when searching for help for other users. I suspect this may have been the thread you found: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2391606

I can say that I trust there's nothing malicious in the script. But, that was made for kernels previous to 5.3 when most of the UCM stuff was properly added to the kernel to negate the need for these workarounds.

yes, that is the correct post, sorry I normally mention the origins via link.
There is just the admin account in my installation, I tried to add the 2 root entries, but just one stuck checked after reboot.
I think for this script I have to be root, so I try to su in the terminal but my password don't work.
Searching for a solution went to null.
Then I pasted parts of the script where the files are gathered in the terminal to see if I get a response if they are still there but that did not work.
So a script is not pasted into the console but run with a link to it.
Oh man, how do people with knowledge always assume somebody who just installed Lunix and tries to get things running knows these things???
We do not, so this is why so many of us newbies fail and why so many go back to Windows.
With you taking me by the hand step by step and we were trying things out and then post the results so that others can understand easy, this it how it is proper and helpful. Then in the end, link to a simple step by step solution. Or better put it in short form into the "how to fix things" forum spot.
P.s. our conversation is already in the search results from google on page 2
I will try now and my timeshift is up to date regarding the home folder I checked everything so a simple re installation and timeshift back should work. But then I still try to find out what has to be checked and what not in timeshift.
OK here it goes nothing....

Well the script went through after some minor adjustments and an error in line 109
sed '1,/^exit$/d' < ../$0 | base64 -d > install.log 2>&1 | sudo tee $0.zip > /dev/null 2>&1

Re: Linux on Intel Atom with Everest ES8316 SoC = no speaker sound [Workaround by MrEen]

Post by olo »

long story short, it behaved as if hdmi was disabled
no speaker sound but sound with headphones out of all 4 speakers in mono (we had that b4)
so I tried your command for that setting and sound out of the speakers.
tried several other things, but ended up timeshifting back and we have your original "it works out of the speakers" situation.
So I guess you are the only one who really solved it with a simple switch workaround.

bash -c "sleep 5 && amixer -c1 set Headphone toggle && amixer -c1 set Speaker toggle"


edited title again for better search engine results
I will pack this pc now back into it's original box with the knowledge that everything works as good as possible for the day it will be needed.
... and try for fun ubuntu 20 on test pc number 4 to compare it with all the minty expressions I got over the last few weeks.
