https://bbs.archlinux.org – Good day fellow Archites,I am trying to get my audio working after another fresh install (I am getting good at this).The pertinent hardware is as follows:Mobo: ASUS P5G41T-M LX PLUSSound: Onboard (Realtek ALC887 Chipset)The sound did not work after getting Arch to a good point (ie having KDE installed and pretty much everything else working).Arch however did detect the audio hardware, I just had no sound. I followed every wiki I could find on this and still no luckSo I switched to OSS because I saw that Realtek seems to be a proponent of OSS, this didn't work very well and it didn't (HowTos)
