           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-
        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
           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 (this is not as easy as it seems
           the new update will be downloaded and installed automatically).

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

You can try the latest alsa snapshot available in ATrpms:



        It has a lot of recent fixes and it is working just fine for
        me and for others. I also had no sound with kernel 159, before
        installing this new alsa.

        If you remove the rpm later, you go back to the original sound
        modules (nothing is overwritten).

        Good luck.

    Still doesn't work.

Have you rebooted?

Paulo Roma Cavalcanti
Yes I have.
And I forgot that I've tried the exact same RPM yesterday with same results.
If you look at bugzilla I've reported that version as not working yesterday.
