Hello. Sorry if this is not quite how things are done around here but I have a problem and need a resolution urgently.
I use a HP Pavilion. This model is infamous for its faulty sound card connection. The Garuda version that shipped May '22 is literally the only Linux distro that has ever worked with the sound card and allowed me to use both headjack and onboard speakers.
