Hadn't noticed that the forward tag didn't work last time, sorry about
Okay, it's been three months and upstream hasn't touched my bug. I'm
wondering if I can get some help here, or at least vague ideas about
what might be going wrong.
On this laptop, fn-F3 toggles mute; when mute is turned off, there's an
audible beep. When repeatedly toggling "mute unmute mute unmute", I
noticed that this audible beep capability stops during the boot. By
booting with init=/bin/bash and carefully going through things, I've
managed to narrow it down to when the /etc/init.d/udev script runs
If I reboot and load the modules which udevtrigger would load, that does
not cause the beeps to stop, but then running udevtrigger does stop
them. I think something in udevtrigger somehow disables sound output.
Any ideas? Could this be a Debian-specific problem? What do I test
next? Do I stick a bunch of printfs and sleep commands into the
udevtrigger source to pin things down further?
I've had no sound on this laptop for a year, and finally have some time
to put into this, but would rather not just flail about blindly...
