I've installed Kali 2023.1. Although I tried all sound driver, sound not working. But when I plugged any device like headphone It's working. I also tried Kali other version and Ubuntu latest version but It didn't work.

My laptop has dual boot Windows 11 and Kali.

GPU: RTX 4080 Mobile CPU: i9 13900hx

I have tried these steps:







lspci | grep -i audio

00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Device 7a50 (rev 11)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 22bc (rev a1)

    If you're new to Linux, Kali isn't for you. It's not a desktop distro like Ubuntu, it's a security professional's toolbox. A lot of things are intentionally "broken" as they're either irrelevant or pose a security risk for the purpose. To avoid unnecessary headaches and making things more difficult than they have to be, I'd suggest installing a proper desktop distro for your dual boot, and if you're interested in learning pentesting use Kali as a Virtual Machine.
