Not to worry I'll keep folks posted just bear in mind a Linux expert I am NOT. I did get it to allow a 1920X1080 mode last night - screen was hash but I could actually see the top menu bar for once
I also THINK I've got the audio working using a different ALSA mixer I downloaded (grumble). I'll know for sure when the optical adapter shows up.
Looking it over it's loaded an "experimental" Intel video driver. Interestingly enough the EDID information showing up in the logs looks MUCH saner than what the damned NVIDIA driver reported
I enumerated the USB bus and found a Falcon something or other device for the VFD. What is irritating is that if you go out to the manufacturer's WEB site they mention the possibility of having to reflash the VFD board for proper functionality. The troubleshooting of this being done via Windows of course. The retailer's promise of drivers for "other" OS as well as directions for modding the case for "high performance" power supplies is non-existent as well.
Let's just say that LATE last night when I rolled into bed I was NOT a happy camper. I hope that this afternoon I'll have my second wind and get moving on this. Last night I was pretty tempted to just go back to what I had that was working perfectly. As it is I may end up back using the NVIDIA card since I KNOW it works, I might even go for a different mATX board if the audio gives me too many issues. I had learning to do with the other board too but I thoguht I was mostly past all that.
Anyway, stay tuned if you're pondering this board and I'll try to explain what does and doesn't work. I am, of course, open to suggestions!
