T61 hda_codec

If anyone is using the latest Fedora 9 kernel on a T61, and their audio device has disappeared, worry not. It’s a kernel regression and is fixed upstream, and should be fixed when we get the next kernel update out.

    I’m going to have to say that this sort of thing is a major black-eye for Linux on the desktop. Why is there not a big room somewhere with a bunch of machines being unit-tested before each patch of a kernel or an applicable subsystem? I supposed that was the sort of thing Redhat was supposed to be doing to differentiate itself from Ubuntu, Mandrake, and the other less-well capitalized distros.
