Anyone who's managed to get any sound from a Realtek ALC850 chip in
10.2?  I just tried to install on a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum and the sound
is detected as nVidia nForce3.. The mobo carry the nForce chipset, but
the audio part is served by the Realtek chip...
You are being bitten by the decision of Novell to install *only* open code drivers... and unfortunately the Realtek stuff is not... so, you'll need to get the drivers from Realtek.

I am still running 10.0 (not as brave as you my friend) and my latest machines (HP slimlines) also require the Realtek drivers. I was able to download the drivers from Realtek, install in ALSA, and get the sound to work... took me a couple of days to work things out... I'm slower than some.

I guessed...
I'll take a look at it, I actually downloaded the ALSA package from Realtek as well, but it didn't work at a first try.. ;) No big deal either for me, but I'm certainly going to look into it again when I get some spare time.. (Like in 2012.....)
