How to quickly fix the sound from the headphone jack and microphones in FreeBSD with the X1 Carbon 6th gen (same process applies to many other laptop models).
It’s just a matter of finding the appropriate
nid and correcting their
as numbers. I also forgot to mention that I changed the
seq numbers too which you can see in my /boot/device.hints file.
Press ‘6’ at boot time.
Turn verbose booting on.
dmesg and pipe/grep/more to find
dmesg | grep hda | more
Find appropriate nids and adjust their
seq numbers accordingly.
From what I understand, the
seq number is basically like a priority indicator with 15 being the lowest. So you want your internal devices to have a higher number (0 = internal, 15 = jack).
Also correcting a mistake made in my last video about the X1 Carbon 6th gen’s Intel 8265 wireless device - works perfectly (I was wrong and my router sucks).
