Actually I think the problem is in the pci-utils not in the system-config-soundcard.
Windows is successfully using the Realtek audio driver from acer site :
Note : this driver is the only audio driver available for my laptop on producer
system-config-soundcard detects nothing, it juts reads data from kernel. HD
Realtek means HD audio standard and it was designed by intel so the driver for
this sound device is called HD Intel and works for all HD chips.
Anyway, your sound card seems to be detected properly. The log looks sane. I can
be some kernel misconfiguration.
See this page:
you may modify this line from /etc/modprobe.conf with:
options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=acer
After added model=acer to the "options snd-hda-intel index=0", sound suddenly
