Right, at the weekend I upgraded my Asus Eee PC (1008HA for those of you interested) to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS – Lucid Lynx from the previous version, 9.10. Everything seemed fine (I think).
On Monday or Tuesday night I then upgraded the BIOS to see if it would fix the fact that the wireless was shite when I was using Ubuntu. (Incidentially either the BIOS or OS upgrade seems to have fixed the probelms I had connecting to one specific router)
I didn’t notice a problem at the time because I’m dual booting Windows XP and was using that, but when I booted into Ubuntu again on Thursday night, the audio didn’t seem to be working. I quickly discovered that the sound did indeed work at the login screen, but once I logged in there was nothing (including no welcome sound). The audio/volume functions on the Fn keys also now do nothing (though brightness ones still work!)
I think the sound was fine following the Ubuntu upgrade, but I’m not sure, so I think the BIOS upgrade has ballsed it up. Which is a pain. It looks like I’ll have to try reverting the BIOS and/or Ubuntu to a previous version. Watch this space…
