    Sound Card / MB Problem?


    I built a new machine recently and was really hoping to use Linux preferrably OpenSuse or Ubuntu).
    The Motherboard I purchased is a P5KPL-CM. Everything works very well except that the built in sound card is not detected and does not work. Is there a work around for this. Thanks in advance.

    I searched the web and the only linux review I found said that the VIA chip is not supported on linux. If you check for linux compatibility first, you may be able to find an add-in card that works with linux.[url]
    http://www.linux-drivers.org/[url] has many links for hardware searches.
    [code]aplay -l[code] will tell you if linux recognises your sound card.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I have an Intel MB and Linux supports its HD sound chip set very well. I'm listening to some nice tunes streamed from WDCB outside of Chicago right now.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
