Dear MEDION Service Community,
Medion Poland (Medion Polska) informed that to some notebooks, for example:
there are no drivers for operating system Linux.
Holders of these notebooks, who are using Linux they can not start some internal devices, for example, internal microphone.
We were advised to pass this issue to MEDION Service Community by Medion Poland.
At the same time, somebody suggested to ask the programmers of the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) project about the creation of audio device drivers to these notebooks with Linux.
In this connection, I have a question for you:
1) Will MEDION be able to start actions in the direction of the creation drivers to these notebooks with Linux?
And if this is not possible, next question:
2) Will MEDION be able to share the necessary information to write these drivers for ASLA?
I and community from Ubuntu.pl look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to the community.
Drivers for the Medion product range are based on the operating system supplied with the unit at point of sale.
If you require details of chipsets and motherboard specifics, then if you contact Medion, they should be able supply that information to assist in driver development.
Hope this helps
