Re: Karmic: No front audio! VIA VT1708B
Sounds like another reason to head back to jaunty until the LTS is released, imo the dev team have totally lost their minds. They took a fairly problem free distro and basically "partially" stripped out soon to be replaced code to only replace it with partially completed code. I have never witnessed such an outburst in the number of hardware/compatability complaints around a release such as this one?
Such things such as asoundconf-gtk [as an example(wich is the default for most people that have been around long enough to see the amount of tutorials developed around it)], is there, but not there, wtg!
I have piled my Karmic disks in the soon to be coaster pile, or was it really a vista release skinned as ubuntu, hard to tell with the problems surrounding it, yet it is called the linux distro that my grandother can use?, PLEASE. She could use jaunty no problem, even reinstalled it herself, this stuff "Karmic" I wouldn't wish on an enemy let alone a family member. I have been a fan of ubuntu and ubuntu based flavors for quite some time, especially those who wish to embrace OSS, but this here, might actually get that annoying uncle to stop calling if you install it on his computer, he will become an enemy and you will be considered an ememy of the state, neat way to get you out of those awkward Christmas dinners you never liked going to anyway......
