Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think not, but i ask anyway : is sound hdmi ?
Maybe some integrated chipsets are not yet recognized by alsaconf, but are by the kernel's module.
So you have sound ^^.
I am not sure whether sound is hdmi or not. How can I check it? I tried with custom kernels compiled with the snd-hda-codec-hdmi built as a module and not built at all. No difference. I also remember very well that before upgrading to the 2.6.37 kernel, alsaconf woked with the 126.96.36.199 kernel, but now it works with neither of them. I have no idea at all what might have gone wrong. Interestingly, sound works and alsamixer has a full menu.
The Arch Wiki claims that alsaconf should not be run for modern sound cards.
All necessary modules should be detected and loaded automatically by udev. No special configuration is required unless an ISA card is being used. NEVER use alsaconf if you have a PCI or ISAPNP sound card, as the entries alsaconf adds to the modprobe.conf file might break udev's autodetection.
