Need a PCI-E sound card with low profile bracket, optical out, and one
of those mini-din connectors that fans out into various analog connectors.
Only card I have been able to find so far uses a CM8828 chipset.
Looks like that chipset is natively supported by the kernel alsa driver
starting in 3.17 kernel but CentOS 7 uses 3.10 kernel.
I did not see a package that was obviously for that chipset in elrepo.
Has that driver been backported into the RHEL/CentOS 7 kernel, and if
not, is it in elrepo?
Worst case scenario I suppose it may be possible to port the driver like
many of the elrepo drivers have been, but not sure I want to buy
hardware based on a "may be possible"
Thanks for any comments.
