Post No Analog Sound Output in Some Linux Distros
There is still an issue with the 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio with some Linux distros like Ubuntu. The Sound is fine in Linux Mint 15 and Fedora 19. Eventually, all distros should fix this problem. The computer should be able to play both analog and digital (S/PDIF) output. But the only sound settings availalbe are the digital output and sound with HDMI. My speakers require analog output to work.

Code:
 # aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 1: ALC888 Digital [ALC888 Digital]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


It's the first audio playback device that is not being configured. If google about, you will find several people have this problem. I am reasonably certain that the solution to this problem is changing some options in the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file.

It has occurred to me that this problem could be the result of my flashing the BIOS when I got the machine.

And for irads amusement, I am using Linux Mint right now on the fit-PC.

I got back from vacation and updating my linux software and suddenly the sound magically worked, hence I changed the post above and did some experimenting with the big distros.
