Thinkpad Helix 2 : No audio on linux



I am having no sound on Linux with 20CG model. I only get HDMI output and no mixer controls. I am using linux 4.6.

Can anyone point out what could be wrong?

Re: Thinkpad Helix 2 : No audio on linux

A bit off topic though... I have the experience of installing ubuntu on helix 2. Though I didn't check the audio support, I noticed that the processor's highest clock speed has been locked @1.2GHz (and without turboboost) and therefore the performance is very poor. In windows, the clock should be 1.4GHz in tablet mode and 1.6GHz when docked. That's why I later fall back to use virtual machine and windows linux bash....
