I have seen this same post so it seems to be a common issue. Maybe Linux does not digital audio extraction or maybe there is a setting ? I would look inside the PC and make sure there is an audio cable just to eliminate one possibility if nothing els. Hope this helps
Yeah ! Perhaps this is the solution to the sound problem I wonder
about for two years ! Just a little cable ?!?
I opened my PC and I see clearly the empty slot at the
back of the CD player, waiting for its cable, but it is a lot
less clear where to connect it on the mother board...
Someone can help ? My audio device is called
"Inter Corp 82801DB AC'97 Audio", with module i810_audio.
It seems merged in the motherboard.
