Troubleshooting my "weird" laptop
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment:
Pipewire: 0.3.37 Distro: Arch Linux DE: i3-gaps
CPU: AMD Ryzen 4800h Audio codec: Realtek ALC274
Description of Problem:
Since I bought this laptop (Eluktronics RP-15- TongFang) I noticed some weirds things about it. First, the maximum playback sample rate is limited to 48KHz on the 3.5mm output and the speakers output (both on windows and linux) but the capture devices go up to 192KHz. I also had to put the next line "options snd-hda-intel power_save=0" on my modprobe.d because without it my headphones makes a little "pop" everytime that the audio device goes to sleep. At the boot of the kernel there is just one "pop" maybe when the audio drivers loads up (so far in windows I haven't hear the "pop").
I'm in the realtime group. I have tried different kernels, linux-zen is at the moment the best one for my set-up, but linux-rt gives me a ton of ERRs in pw-top when playing games with low latency audio.
I play osu! with patches to reach low latency sound, and so far is been working pretty fine under pipewire 64/48000 quantum. The thing is that randomly I have "waves" of ERRs on pw-top and the sound distort in those "waves".
So far I have tried to trace xruns with (journalctl -b --user -u pipewire --user -u pipewire-pulse --user -u pipewire-media-session and dmesg) but I don't know if that is the correct way to trace audio issues.
Pipewire have a better situation than Pulseaudio, since the latter just distort (maybe xruns) like crazy with default settings.
So, the thing here is that maybe this is a problem in the linux driver for this laptop audio, but to be honest I don't have idea how to start to trace the root of the issue, that's why I am here.
I attached all the information that I think is necessary.
Thanks in advance.
