Hi, all. Relative Linux newbie here.
I’ve installed Fedora Workstation 31 to an Asus G11CD midtower, which is an i5-6400 with 16 GB of RAM and an Intel H110 chipset. It, presumably, has an ALC887 capability build into the chipset but it was not recognized in the install process. When I execute “aplay -l” at a command line, I get:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC887-VD Analog [ALC887-VD Analog]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
so it is visible on the system. Still, audio support was not installed at OS install (there’s a dummy placeholder there now and nothing else is selectable in the system tool). Another detail that may or may not be pertinent is that HDMI is being used as video output generated by the onboard chipset. This is as opposed to the NVidia video card the machine was sold with (if you look up the machind at Asus) but was not in the machine at install time (it was moved to another system for gaming purposes). HDMI is also intended as the audio output destination for the machine.
Is there some way to force the install, or Fedora, to recognize the device, or manually install it? Please be relatively explicit about how to go about it as I am relatively new to this world. I can install things from the package manager, I think, but if I have to go fetch and install things (from a foreign repository, for example), please be sure to tell me where to go and what to do. Thanks.
