As a result of the Ubuntu Sound Issues as well as post on the Ubuntu Forums, I had some suggestions as to how to fix my issues. Now this morning I booted directly into Ubuntu and the dangest thing happened, I had sound again. I also have determined that my other sound issue were being caused by as Nogg3r5 put it: “unreliable alpha software”.
So far so good, I’ve been using Fx 2 along with Banshee media player all morning. Just wish Foxy Tunes supported Banshee. I did drop the folks at Foxy Tunes a note about this as it had been discussed in their forums prior but that was back in July 2006.
