I am dual-booting Mac OS X and Linux on my iMac. For some strange reason, I am not getting sound from my system in Linux, although it is common Intel audio and I have installed the popular Mint distro. What could be the reason ?
I am running an unmodified, out of the box install on my iMac 2.66Ghz. I am puzzled that Mint is not able to configure what is commonly Intel Audio. In fact my laptop (which also has Intel audio) is dual-booting Windows and Slackware, and sound works out of the box under Slackware!
Can we say Slackware is more friendlier than Mint or that Apple are making it harder for other operating systems to play nice? This is not the first time, I have tried with two or three Linux distros and the results have been negative as far as sound is concerned.
