Realtek Alc 880 Sound Drivers

Howdy. I have a new HP Pavilion a819n (here are the specs

As you can see it has the realtek alc 880 chipset. I have done some googling but found no positive sounding talk that this chipset is supported under linux. However when I go to realtek's site they offer a linux driver download.

I've just done a fresh install of FC3. The soundcard doesn't seem to be recognized (the gui tells me "no soundcard detected" when i run sound detection. This is as far as I have gotten. I am looking for feedback, anyone out there using this chipset under linux???

Thanks in advance,

Hi all,
i am new to this forum. was searching for a solution about the sound problem with Realtek ALC880 sound card in linux. Found this post. Replying here only although it is very old.

I am using a Compaq Presario SR 1630IL with Ubuntu Linux 9.4 as default OS. My system has Realtek ALC880 sound card. In windows I do not have any problem with my sound card but in linux im getting very low sound although my external amplifier is in full volume and the internal volume controller / ALSA mixer is in full volume. Is it any problem with ALC880 in linux? So far I did get it solved.

Waiting eagerly for your help.
