Clearly something is wrong. At the time that this bug was closed you
haven't even identified what the actual problem is or at the very
least pointed the user at the type of information required so that the
actual problem can be identified.

If you want to delegate the initial triaging of your bugs to
debian-user or some random forum, that's your business, but you still
need to inform the user that they should ask
debian-user@lists.debian.org for assistance because you don't want to
deal with what is likely a user configuration issue.

Even a simple template response pointing people at the right resources
would be useful.

I have fixed my problem.

One of the things I did was uninstall splashy. But I also had a bigger problem.
There were missing rules in /etc/udev and /etc/udev/rules.d

I looked in packages:

and there are no *.rules files in the new package (udev_0.140-2_amd64.deb).

My system was missing all of the .rules that were in the udev_0.125-7_amd64.deb

So I was having issues with everything from ethernet cards to usb devices and sound.
When I put the missing files in /etc/udev and /etc/udev/rules.d, everything worked.

I don't know if these files should be in the new package or not, but my system was
jacked until I replaced them.
