I did some tests on my Dell Studio Slim (inspiron 540st), alc888 codec on inel ich10 chipset.

1) ubuntu 8.10 with the latest upgrades, default kernel, default alsa drivers: no digital output shown with "aplay -L". I can hear sounds only through the analog outputs and only after editing /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base, inserting "options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1 model=6stack-dell"

2) I upgraded alsa to the 1.0.19 version: now aplay -L returns:

iec958:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
HDA Intel, ALC888 Digital
IEC958 (S/PDIF) Digital Audio Output

but still no sounds trough spdif

Then I installed jaunty, ran a dist-upgrade and the digital output was recognized with no need to upgrade alsa (1.0.19 isn't in the jaunty repos). Still, no sounds from spdif.

Did you use a particular configuration?
