VIA pico ITX, soundcard (VT1708/A [Azalia HDAC]) and SATA vs IDE/PATA

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, I have a VIA picoITX board and am trying to install fedora 12 on it. The problems I run into are with the audio card (VT1708/A [Azalia HDAC]) depending wether or not I use an IDE/PATA or SATA drive. If I use a IDE/PATA drive, Fedora seems to recognize the card and everything seems to be ok. If I use an SATA drive, it still sees the card (lshw sees it too) but the ALSA driver doesn't install it looks like. On another system I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 and that one see the soundcard just fine (with an SATA drive, IDE or both). If I look in the Linux Kernel driver database, my card/device is n there. any ideas? tips? thanks, Ron (HowTos)
