Hi, I am very stuck, I have been trying hard for a long time to try to 
get digital out sound working on my Gentoo Linux kernel 2.6 test-5 
machine. I do not have any conventional speakers, just an optical 
digital lead going from a spdif out to an external dolby digital reciever.

Can anyone please describe the exact process to me of getting digital 
out working on alsa drivers using a 2.6xx kernel? I am aware that the 
2.6x kernels come with alsa included and I have enabled it and my 
via82xx soundcard as modules.

Your advice is welcome.
