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:
P5E-VM has RealTek ALC883 audio chip. Supporting kernel modules are:
snd_hda_codec_intelhdmi snd_hda_codec_realtek snd_hda_intel snd_hda_codec
If using S/PDIF digital output, the option --spdif option must be given.
