    915 uses Intel High Definition Audio. To use this soundcard you need to install ALSA >= 1.0.10 and then pass extra options to the module snd-hda-intel, depending on the type of sound card you have. The in-kernel ALSA drivers will NOT work. The various options available for this module are
    Code:
    	  Model name	Description
    	  ----------    -----------
    	ALC880
    	  3stack	           3-jack in back and a headphone out
    	  3stack-digout	3-jack in back, a HP out and a SPDIF out
    	  5stack	           5-jack in back, 2-jack in front
    	  5stack-digout	5-jack in back, 2-jack in front, a SPDIF out
    	  6stack	           6-jack in back, 2-jack in front
    	  6stack-digout	6-jack with a SPDIF out
    	  w810		      3-jack
    	  z71v	  	   3-jack (HP shared SPDIF)
    	  asus		      3-jack
    	  uniwill       	   3-jack
    	  F1734		     2-jack
    	  test		           for testing/debugging purpose
    I am currently using the following option with Intel D915GLVG Motherboard
    Code:
    model=3stack position_fix=2
    Oh and btw, you didn't need to create a poll for it.

    Alsa 1.0.7 onwards snd-azx (Azalia) and afterwards snd-hda supported.so u may need to update ur Alsa and have kernel-module-alsa made and installed.And if u have internet,you can update your kernel to >=2.6.12.So best of LUX.Also all these distros DRI/graphics drivers installed and supported for i915.. :)
    @eddie:where do those options listed..i could not find any in my debian's /sur/share/doc/alsa* :)
