Hello all!

I've a problem with my AsRock Core and my audio over HDMI. Trying to get it work now for over 2 months.

On Ubuntu 10.04 it was working with the offical Realtek HDA Intel driver for Linux but on Ubuntu 10.10 the driver installation failed.

By asrock core, do you mean Core 100HT?
This guy here seems to suggest it works out of the box with 10.10:

Although he is using 32 bit.

Can you provide the output of

Can it be a problem of the 32 / 64 bit?

Currenty I've installed the latest ALSA-Snapshot. Analog sound output is working but no sound over HDMI.

How can I remove all alsa packages (including custom configs from Realtek drivers) / pulse-audio packages and reinstall them as it was after the ubuntu-installation?

I've tried:

sudo apt-get purge linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utilsand

sudo apt-get install linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils gdm ubuntu-desktopas suggested in this thread:
http://georgia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1643041

but no luck.

I've completely reinstalled the kernel, ubuntu-desktop, alsa and pulseaudio without the snapshots. Now the soundcard is recognized as it were with the ALSA-Snapshot.

I've no "HDMI Stereo" Option. I can only set:
"Digital Stereo Output (IEC958 )"
or
"Digital Stereo (IEC958 ) Output + Analog Stereo Input"

None of the them is working. All the other options are for Analog.

Id try booting a 32 bit livecd, see if it works in a live session.

This is what I've done now.. with a 64bit Ubuntu Live CD..

Using the Live CD I have 2 more sound profile options:
"Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output"
and
"Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output + Analog Stereo Input"

With this profile selected the sound works over HDMI.

My problem is now how can I remove and reinstall all sound related packages to get these two options in my installed Ubuntu?

Or is there a guide how to reinstall all these packages?

Undoing what you have done over the past 2 months of experimenting (and perhaps more, since you upgraded from 10.04 and you might have tweaked that to make HDMI work) might be a mission impossible. Easiest is probably just backing up your home folder (or partition), and do a fresh install.

It was a clean Xubuntu 10.10 installation 2 months ago. Just installed ubuntu-desktop and removed xubuntu-desktop and installed ALSA-Snapshots.

Well I tought with this OS I could remove packages including config files and reinstall necessary packages and it you would be as good as new.

This is why I switched to Linux.. to not have to install the OS every 6 months.

Can anyone confirm with the latest kernel update the profile Option "Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output" will still be available?

In this case even Windows (and I don't like Windows at all) is far less complicated beside the registry crap. Really disappointing situation..
