Hello,

my laptop has the sound card es8316 but unfortunately there is no sound working on it. I tried Trisquel 8 & 9. I made a research online and found this script:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bIJTzBdMDejj8-6Er8EecjYSDcvULbPx/view

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dsd/linux/es8316/sound/soc/codecs/es8316.c

I checked out the script and the source code as far as I could read it, but I didn't understand it all. It is under the GNU2 license so I would like to try it, but before I do it I would like to get your advice. Is it trustworthy?

Thank you

On Trisquel 8, the default 4.4 kernel does not support that sound card, but, as far as I understand, the 4.15 kernel (provided by the package linux-image-generic-hwe-8.0) should:
$ grep ES8316 /boot/config-4.4.0-186-generic /boot/config-4.15.0-112-generic
/boot/config-4.15.0-112-generic:CONFIG_SND_SOC_INTEL_BYT_CHT_ES8316_MACH=m
/boot/config-4.15.0-112-generic:CONFIG_SND_SOC_ES8316=m

I believe the latter kernel is the one Trisquel 9 ships by default. That is why I am surprised it actually does not work on Trisquel 9.
