Re: Sound stopped working after update

I got bit by this too and posted here and on devel -- I was referred to
these two bugs:


If you read through them you'll find that they changed some symbol
references in the new kernel you installed and any modules compiled
against the old kernel source are now broken ... that includes all of

The solutions provided were: wait for alsa modules to be updated, or
compile alsa yourself from source.  I tried the source route, but have
too many issues with different versions of things and or always wanting
pcmcia ... if it goes too much longer I may just install all the pcmcia
stuff and compile anyway.

The bad thing in looking at the earlier bug above is that this has been
kicking around since 12/4/04 and still isn't resolved 'normally', though
it is tagged as 'grave' and is in the sarge release path.

Hope that helps.
