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.

Distribution: Dabble, but latest used are Fedora 13 and Ubuntu 10.4.1
I give up. Both Linux Mint 12 and SimplyMepis recognize my Nvidia card and HDA Intel PCH card. I have run alsmixer until I am blue in the face, using every conceiveable configuration. Kernel modules are there. Google instructions and they make references to settings that I either don't have or cannot change. Movies work. DVDs work. But no sound on either. I know the video card is recognized.
What is the problem with running sound over an HDMI connection through my monitor that kernel developers want to make so eff****ing difficult?
I dopnt know why jockey is failing, mint 12 should have a driver version that supports the GT420.
You cant blame the kernel devs for issues with audio over HDMI. HDCP alone makes audio over HDMI nowhere near as easy as it should be.
I'd guess you are trying to use nouveau? Unless you are using very new nouveau versions, audio over HDMI will not work with GT/GTX 4XX/5XX cards.
Nouveau Commits: Fermi Reclocking, PM, MXM, Etc Posted by Michael Larabel on December 19, 2011
Here are some of the interesting commits that landed last week into the public Nouveau kernel driver tree.
- HDMI audio support for NVA3 through NVD0 chipsets (commit). This HDMI audio support is for graphics cards from the GeForce GT 240 through some GeForce 400/500 "Fermi" GPUs. NVD9 (newer low-end Fermi GPUs) HDMI audio support is still being hacked on.
