Dell 5770 New install of Tumbleweed, no sound

I have a Dell 5770 which has had Ubuntu, Mangaro, KDE Neon, Fedora Kinoite all installed and working well over the last year or so.

I wanted to try Tumbleweed and so far I have no sound from laptop

I am suspecting due to a driver issue but can’t figure out how to resolve. Sound works when I plug into a dock and use headphones.

I want to persevere with Tumblweed as I like the idea of rolling back updates. I want to move away from Neon as updates frequently break things I need to work.

How do I fix this?

Please share the output from the following commands

inxi -Aa
pactl list sinks

Thanks again for help deano, apologies for not formatting correctly beforehand.

Install the ‘sof-firmware’ package as the dmesg output reports that it is missing. Reboot when done. See how that goes.


Thanks @deano_ferrari that worked.

I used sudo zypper install sof-firmware to install, is that the correct “tumbleweed” way?

I don’t think I picked a minimal install when installing so am surprised sound didn’t work straight away. Are there other common things I should install?

Now need to resolve the overheating issue.

Thanks again @deano_ferrari , I really appreciate your quick help.

OK, I found PCI ID buried in your earlier post.


It should be installed automatically as long as recommends are not disabled:

bor@tw:~> zypper --no-refresh info --supplements sof-firmware

Sounds is working now, but for completeness

Glad to have been of guidance.

Maybe you installed in legacy/MBR in which case you don’t have an efi directory??? can you boot to Windows from the grub menu??

What has that got to do with this issue?
