Today, we got a successful build of the Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc6 in the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel HTTP website. This means we can now install it manually in our systems without the need to build it manually.
The changelog for the changes since the main Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc6 seem to indicate that the Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc7 will include some fixes for the High Definition Audio interface (HDA) on some machines. These are already in this daily version. Specifically, the following fixes and support are included:
- ALSA: HDA Intel 5 Series / 3400 PCI DID support.
- ALSA: HDA/Realtek for ASUS G513, G533Z headphone jack and the ASUS GA503 laptop.
- ALSA: HDA/Realtek support for 4-speaker output on Dell Precision 5530 and 5570 laptops.
- ALSA: HDA/Realtek fix for HP OMEN 16 (8902) mute LED.
- ALSA: HDA/Realtek for Huawei WRT-WX9.
- ALSA: HDA fixes for Nvidia Tegra.
- Misc fixes
If you are experiencing issues on some of these machines, you may opt to give this kernel release try.
