LXer: A Debian Lenny status report for the $0 Laptop

Published at LXer:

I've been waiting ... and waiting ... for Debian to come to its senses and re-add the sound chip -- the ESS 1988 Allegro -- in my Gateway Solo 1450 back into the Lenny kernel. Sound had been fine in Debian Etch (Stable) and in the first two kernels in Debian Lenny (Testing), but once the 2.6.24 kernel was added, I lost sound on the $0 Laptop. Reverting back to the 2.6.22 kernel restored my sound, and I eventually hunted down the bug report, which -- in grand Debian tradition -- didn't solve the bug but instead provided a work-around.
