sound problems



Yeah.. I know. fedora-devel is not a place for discussing bugs but I'll risk.

As (I hope) many of You already know kernel-2.6.27.9-159 which was pushed as a security update has broken sound on many systems (mostly notebooks) - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=477954. The reason for this is the new ALSA (1.0.18a).

There are a lot of "+1"s and "me too"s in bugzilla and if we consider the amount of people who don't know how to report bugs, add those who are on New Year holidays it becomes clear that this affects a lot of our users.

So users have two choices now:
1. Have no sound.
2. Stick with 2.6.27.9-134 (this is not as easy as it seems cause the new update will be downloaded and installed automatically).

I do understand that many developers are on holidays themselves, but I'm also sure this is a REAL problem which should be resolved ASAP.
So I just wanted to know what are we going to do about this.

Regards,
Suren
