HDMI sound, Nvidia drivers and the ALSA drivers



There have been a number of questions about this over the last 
months, 
so I thought I'd post a summary of my results.

The short answer: the latest kernel, 2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10, provides 
the 1.0.17 ALSA drivers. For the snd_hda_intel driver at least, that's 
not sufficient. The solution is to get the latest (1.0.19) driver from 
the ALSA site, compile and install. You don't need full kernel sources 
to do this; the kernel-devel module is enough.

FWIW, here's the relevant info on the hardware.
	MB: ASUS P5N7A-VM

             product: MCP79 High Definition Audio
