Update on my previous kernel rant, I finally compiled it down to just 2.9GB! included all the needed modules and I am also able to boot off of it!

Great news is, that sound both on speakers and also through headphones work, bad news is, that there's some overlayed buzz/distortion, the playback is higher pitched and chrome for some reason plays videos "normally" if you set it to 0.5 speed, else the video get sped up in the "normal" speed setting, well fuck me, but atleast I am closer, also as always thanks to arch wiki, that has tons of resources.

It might be some of the quick hacks that causes this, that I used in the past to make sound work through an external usb card atleast, so might be worth it just reinstalling it all.

    Just out of curiosity, what was wrong with installing drivers with pre build kernel? There are many drivers like alsa etc.

    @Floydian I'll just wait for the opportunity to use that too 🤣
    @rookiemaverick it's a cherrytrail soc, so the needed modules were not part of the compiled kernel antergos uses, so I had to compile my own version including them, so whatever frontend (pulseaudio I think) could make use of it

    @Floydian tbh I just went through your past rants, to kind of cheat and already use it, but there's no real rant yet to put it into, you need to rant more 😰

    @JoshBent It is rightly said, if opportunity doesn't knock the door, build the door and you seem to be building the door. HAHAHa...

    And yes, less rants these days as supposedly life is going good which is also a thing to worry about because if everything goes well, then there must be something wrong :(

    I want to post a rant but just resisting it for god knows what reason. Will post in sometime.

    @Floydian was about to use it on your comment, but that's too cheap, I'll find another opportunity 😂

    @Floydian also it doesn't have to always be turning bad after doing well, sometimes it just stays this way

    @JoshBent Hahaha I might give you an opportunity soon :P ;)

    And no man, be it good or bad, it passes. Time is most powerful entity of all.

    I had severe issues with my sound driver for some time with Arch, but I think all the issues are resolved in the latest kernel updates.

    But these resources came in handy when I was fixing it:

    https://mjmwired.net/kernel/...

    Of Course this is for Internal Intel HD Audio

    Also these are the settings I have to have in my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf

    options snd_hda_intel model=headset-dmic position_fix=3 ac97_quirck=alc_jack

    @Bitwise yeah 4.17 introduced those mentioned modules, which up to 4.13 had to be still patched in from a guy maintaining it and wasn't fixed or merged up until now it seems, also thanks for the links, will see if it has anything on my current state of problems :)

    @JoshBent hmmmm. Good to know.

    @JoshBent your original kernel(provided by antergos) configuration didn't support loading of sound drivers you needed as module?

    @darkLord it didn't include them during compilation, so there was nothing to activate
