I know there was a big thread about this earlier in December, but no one
since has said anything about it. :)

Just got my new E520. Core 2 Duo, 965 chipset, and no sound support in
10.2 to speak of. It looks like it's deliberate, based on the information
at ... of course, I'm not even sure
that the current kernel would support this motherboard audio

Analog audio out and SPDIF. <sigh>

Well, you can install the current alsa 1.0.14rc1 over the top of the
2.6.18-34 kernel and make it give you *all* the options. :)

Just build ONLY the snd_hda_intel modules, and only use the install-modules
target to install it. Minimum disruption to the existing kernel install.

Lots of stuff in the changelog for that version about new PCI ID's for
Dell machines, and fixes/changes to the Sigmatel support as well.

I couldn't find anything in the list archives, but did find some stuff for
other distributions on the 'net. :)

Anyway, figured I'd make my first post to the list at least vaguely
