LXer: Fixing sound in Debian Lenny for PCs with ESS Allegro/Maestro3 sound chips..

Published at LXer:

Why Debian decided at this juncture to remove the binary blog that supports sound for those with ESS Allegro/Maestro3 chips -- including The $0 Laptop (Gateway Solo 1450) -- I don't know. The problem -- i.e. no sound -- reared itself in the newish 2.6.24-1 kernel that recently rolled into Debian Lenny. It took me awhile before I figured out that booting the previous kernel -- 2.6.22-3 -- brought sound back. But what if I have to reinstall Lenny and don't get the older kernel? Or what if want to use the new kernel ... and those that follow?
