Re: GT430 On Linux (Slackware64 13.1) not recognized by ALSA
I've confirmed both that:
a) The symptoms in your bug report file match the ALSA driver not supporting the FERMI codec IDs.
b) The 18.104.22.168 (and indeed 22.214.171.124) kernel doesn't contain the support for FERMI codec IDs.
Unfortunately, you'll either need to apply the patch and rebuild your own kernel, or move to a newer kernel or distro/version.
