Having change motherboard and processor I have 1 outstanding issue. I can't get 
sound to work in 6 channel mode.

If I do a lspci -v | grep -i audio I get 
00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
This I think is a Realtek ALC883 2,4 or 6 channel
I could not find this in kernel config but some documentation lead me to believe 
that the driver I needed was hda-intel.
Alsa conf says  No supported PnP or PCI card found.
But I do get output on the line out socket (Lime)
the sound is capable of 2,4 or 6 channel configuration
Surrounf (light blue)
Front speakers (Lime)
Center/Bass (Pink)

Any experts out there --- please
