Yes, it doesn't have anything to do with the xorg.conf file.
I eventually did a search on the radeon hdmi sound card and came across a number of linux-users with the same problem.http://askubuntu.com/questions/67113...-radeon-driver
The solution is this:
# gedit /etc/default/grub
Then change the line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash radeon.audio=1"
Turns out the coding was removed because it would turn the screen black for some Intel users because they used the HDMI port for both sound and graphics.
So all users with an ATI RS880/Radeon 4200 hdmi sound card have to manually insert the above code.
I have sound! Yippee!
Only now there's some guy constantly telling me everything I'm doing!
How do I turn that function off?
