I did a report for a long time ago about the sound in Pardus 2009.1. And now they (KDE) have respond better late then never:https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=230703
Little late of course I find out myself that I must choose "Master Front" to get it working, but I have weak sound in Pardus 2011.1 to if I compare with Ubuntu 11.04. (and in the latest PCLinuxOS to)
Was no problem in Pardus 2009, 2009.2 or 2011. I wonder why KDE seems have so difficult to deal with this? They refeer it as a 0% problem.
In Ubuntu I get normal sound "out of the box" after a installation everytime and I don't need spend several hours to get a normal sound.
But in KDE this problem coming and going.
I must say I getting little tired of it.
