Intel's Mobo Page:
I have tested this Motherboard with the following OS:
1. Ubuntu v6.06 (Dapper Drake)
2. Ubuntu v6.10 (Edgy Eft)
The Motherboard works perfectly in both cases!
However, you might have to check on the following 2 things:
1. Activate the Motherboard's audio out to hear sound.
To do this, perform the following steps:
a. Launch a Terminal window (from your Menu, select "Applications\Accessories\Terminal").
b. Type "alsamixer"
c. To select a "control", use your keyboard's left & right arrow keys.
d. To increase/decrease a "control's" volume, use your keyboard's up & down arrow keys.
e. To mute/unmute a "control", use your keyboard's M key.
f. Move around to adjust other "controls", by repeating above steps 3-5.
g. To exit the "alsamixer", press your keyboard's "ESC" key twice.
If you have unmuted the correct "controls" in alsamixer & your speaker jacks are plugged in the right place in your Mobo's audio-out, your audio should now work fine!
2. Make your Microphone work with Ubuntu.
To do this, perform the following steps (for Ubuntu v6.10):
a. Make sure that inside "alsamixer", your microphone is activated.
b. From the Menu, select "Applications\Sound & Video\Sound Recorder"
c. From the Menu, select "File\Open Volume Control"
d. From the Menu, select "Edit\Preferences"
e. Make sure the following are selected:
- Line-in Capture
- Microphone Capture
- Stereo Mic
f. Click on the button named "Close".
g. Click on the Tabs: "Playback", "Capture" & "Switches"
h. Activate all options under "Line-in", "Microphone" & "Capture".
i. Close the open window.
After changing these, the "Sound Recorder" should be working fine!!!
