This is so frustrating. I can't switch the laptop to Linux without the sound working, since that is 80% of what I use the damn thing for.

I'm feeling the urge again and the MP3 collection is zooming over the LAN to my desktop as we speak.

Perhaps a simple install of a commercial OS is in order. I could make a very simple Mandrake or RedHat (rpm -e --nodeps lm_sensors) that installs quick and play with modprobe until it works...

Well, some planning. I think I will squeeze in a 600Mb Windows partition. That will let me do bare minimum while kicking Linux.
