Hi Stefan,
Believe it or not, I see no audio-out port on the back of
the motherboard.  The H8DME-2's manual does not show one
on its schematic, and a grep of the text shows no mention
of audio output capabilities.

I never noticed this until now, since I have no interest
in audio in any of my projects.


PS: I'm curious, why does coreboot need to initialize
the audio?  It has no need of audio itself, and AFAIK,
no payload which follows coreboot needs audio either.
I believe that if coreboot restricted itself to
initializing only that which was absolutely essential,
it would become intrinsically more stable.
