Upgraded stable to testing, and it worked with much difficulty and
'aptitude dist-upgrade' and ended up with two mildly annoying situations
with ALSA and CUPS.
You can save trouble upgrading from Sarge to Etch by following the five
(adapted from http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=401317).
ALSA won't provide sound after a reboot or re-logon unless I run the
/etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart script. Works good after that. Using
and kernel 2.6.18. Works OK with GNOME logon so it seems it's a
KDE thing. Could just run the command somewhere but I'd like to find
the problem, eventually.
Following Etch, I occasionally find that Alsa appears not to work. I
think the problem lies with occasional changes to the autodetect
software which configures my motherboard's integrated sound and ignores
the PCI card. Easily fixed by running alsaconf.
