Hardware

Asus P5E-VM HDMI

P5E-VM HDMI is one of the first motherboards capable of outputting audio through HDMI interface and thus good choice for HTPC platform. It has Intel G35 Chipset which needs the xorg-x11-drv-intel X-driver package.

Fedora 10/rawhide drivers have problems (bug #496614) with hanging video and thus one needs to be sure what version of intel driver is used. Following drivers are known to work:

2.6.0-14.fc11
