    Thanks for the response dungeon. Strangely Ubuntu doesn't seem to have detected audio hardware at all.

    $ aplay -l
    aplay: device_list:268: no soundcards found...

    BUT $ lshw gives me

    *-multimedia:1
    description: Audio device
    product: FCH Azalia Controller
    vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD]
    physical id: 14.2
    bus info: [email protected]:00:14.2
    version: 02
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz

    Can anyone tell me how to get Ubuntu to recognise the audio device permanently and get the drivers into the system?

    It is probably intel hda, check mixers... or if it isn't that maybe try to set which one is primary or permute it kernel parameter something like:

    snd_hda_intel index=1,0

    I wonder if someone can help me? I've got an ASRock AM1H-ITX running Ubuntu server, Openbox and Kodi. Graphics is running Catalyst drivers and runs fine - h/w acceleration is working etc. BUT I can't get any sound out of it!! Nothing from the headphone out and nothing from HDMI. Has anyone got the audio working correctly on this m/board? If so which driver is it using?

    TIA

    Debian does not install anything from non-free repo by default.

    Install 'firmware-linux-nonfree' and reboot. While you there might want to install 'amd64-microcode' too, etc...

    same install on an old i5 runs fully accelerated.

    anyone managed to find a minipcie SSD that worked for this board?

    can i use a full size one if i manage to hold it down? or does full vs half size means more than the form factor of fitting the thing on the board? the connector seems to be the same...

    Hi,
    Got myself AM1H-ITX with 5350... OC with this is just pure cruelty :P

    With 2Gigs of RAM made a nas/torrentbox/media server machine. My plan was to make a steam streaming client form it too but... AMD drivers and Ubuntu just don't get on with each other...
    Can't make AMD drivers work properly... after fglrx installation system hangs at ubuntu logo after restart -> http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=831 If anyone could help me...

    Thanks, I opted to order a Unex DNXA-97 based on your recommendation.

    I'd recommend getting a Qualcomm Atheros based card that works with the ath9k driver on Linux. A few examples:

    3T3R MIMO:
    SparkLAN WPEA-128N

    2T2R MIMO:
    Unex DNXA-116
    Unex DNXA-97
    Unex DNXA-92
    SparkLAN WPEA-121N
    SparkLAN WPEA-111N
    SparkLAN WPEA-250GN

    All of the above are half-sized Mini PCIe cards. In general, the chipset is what you should base your buying decision on. Brand shouldn't really matter. Azurewave also uses Atheros chips in some of their designs, but might be hard to come by, depending on where you're located. COMPEX is another manufacturer who uses Atheros chips almost exclusively, but I'm not sure if they offer any half-sized cards. Newer Atheros cards (IEEE 802.11ac) use ath10k on Linux and will require non-free firmware but should work fine as well.
