Description Stephen Warren 2010-07-30 18:42:48 UTC
The kernel ALSA driver needs a patch applied to make audio-over-HDMI operate correctly on most supported GPUs.

The exact patch is available at http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-kernel.git;a=commitdiff;h=4289bc9c818ece46f8034616b232caaef4622984

It'd be great if this patch could be included in the standard Fedora kernel(s) for any/all recent or supported distro versions.

Note 1: I believe only the nvidia driver (not nv nor nouveau) support setting up audio-over-HDMI.

Note 2: Very recent GPUs (Fermi class) are not yet supported by the driver. A second patch will be forthcoming for this at some point in time, but we have to validate operation under Linux before releasing this.

Comment 1 Stephen Warren 2010-07-30 18:46:43 UTC
Note: I also filed this against RHEL as bug 619877. I assume filing against
both Red Hat and Fedora separately makes sense? If not, please do let me know.
Thanks.

A second patch is required to support various new GPUs in the ALSA driver:

Thanks.

Comment 6 Stephen Warren 2010-08-11 00:09:03 UTC
Thanks!

One note: 2.6.34.4 only includes the first of those two patches; I imagine the 2nd isn't in that new package?
