I just recently installed Debian 6 on my main desktop after test driving it for awhile on my netbook. So far I am loving it.The strange thing is the upon original install the driver that was picked up would only load on a hard boot. It also had a dead sound so I went to Realtek, I installed that driver which gave me improved quality but the same weird issue.
Is the process different from hard boot vs. soft ? The only thing I can think of is GRUB but I am not sure what to do.
Any input appreciated.
