So far I am very pleased with VL6.0 standard. It got my wireless and webcam unlike some more well known distros, and it is quite speedy.
I have an ACER Aspire One which has a Realtek HD audio under Windows but when running Alsaconf it reports back as snd_hda_intel so I guess that must be the chipset built onboard. It has worked on other distros with Pulseaudio, but I cannot get it to work with VL and Alsa.
A quick search of the forum didn't yield any eureka moments. I have even reinstalled the alsa files int he package manager. Things have got better as I can now get Alsamixer and Mixer to work, but still no sound.
cat /proc/asound/modules reports snd_hda_intel on device 0, but still no joy.
I have tried VLC, MPlayer and XMMS. All with an .m4a(aac) audio file.
