Until anyone volunteer, I suggest the upload is put on hold.

What about testing this in Narvik next weekend ?

Well, it's not a problem to get sound working, but to have it usable is
another thing. It might be funny to notice that you get sound, but when
all you get is the sound you get when you log into kde, but not from the

sound is completely unusable, then announcing that you have sound from
thin client is kind of false marketing. Debian-edu should not do false
I will not allow my people to do false marketing.
