X86_64 – UP Board – Updated to 4.11-rc8 – Sound Supported..

After a bit of a hiatus, I updated the UP Board to Kernel 4.11-rc8, and HDMI sound is now supported..

In the kernel config, under ‘ALSA for SoC audio support‘, select ‘X86 sound devices‘, and ‘HDMI audio without HDaudio on Intel Atom platforms

After (re)boot to 4.11-rc8:

My next ‘Intel’ project is a low-cost small laptop, based on a Chromebook, running Linux/Fedora25 natively, and more details will be coming soon..
