Well this notebook only has an 8-pin S-Video connector, which is just that. S-Video.
But thanks for the advice on USB sound cards. I will look into those.
The TerraTec one isn't too expensive I see. Are you certain it will work fine in GNU/Linux?
It says on their website that it is just plug & play, but will I be able to control it with the volume control settings in Gnome, or even alsamixer? For example, will I be able to adjust bass and treble levels in the Gnome volume control manager?
Couldn't find the AuzenTech one in my country. Only internal cards.
Edit: Never mind. I found this entry on the alsa wiki: http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php/Te...n_5.1_USB_MK.2
Edit2: reading some more about the device, it seems to be impossible to adjust bass and treble levels on it. That is a big reason for why I'm getting a sound card. But I suppose it would be better to just get an amp for that? It doesn't seem like many external sound cards has those controls anyway.
