I was trying to take an audio output from piZero-W, the article I followed was, this one.
How to get audio through the gpio pins to a 3.5mm jack?
When running -
systemctl status alsa-state
the result is
alsa-state.service - Manage Sound Card State (restore and store) Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/alsa-state.service; static; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead) Docs: man:alsactl(1)
