Hello, I am rather new to Linux in general, but am wondering if the built in sound on a mobo is supported by 64Studio, and if not, what sound cards are fairly easy to set up in Linux, or have a tutorial somewhere on the web. Thanks in advance, Phoenix.

model numbers required...

Please give model numbers of MoBo and if possible the chipset of your on board sound. You could do a quick internet search using those two numbers plus linux in the search field. The nice thing about sound in Linux is that it either works, or doesn't (yet). If it doesn't work someone is no doubt working on a solution - but it might take some time. We can then recommend some good replacements, as most on motherboard sound cards are not as good as they advertise to be... If you are serious about sound, best get something pro(ish) if you can afford it. Cheers

For choose your soundcard for linux.

the computer I just built that I like has a mobo from MSI with a model number of: K9VGM-V, and it says that it has Realtek HD Audio. Also, if anyone is using an addon card, it would be nice to know what it is, as I would rather use an addon than built in sound.

My Echo Mia worked out of the box with the latest ALSA packages. I had to do a bit of tweaking in Echo Console Mixer however to obtain sound.
