Today I noticed a short post:
Sound fix for Heron
After checking out several possible solutions to my sound problems in
Hardy Heron, I finally found one that worked for me. Fortunately, it
was pretty easy to carry out, too. Just went to Synaptic and installed
Linux-386 and rebooted. I hope this helps somebody out there and
saves them hours of looking through the forums. Not really sure why
the Linux-386 kernel was missing, but why look a gift horse in the
Care to try installing the linux-386 package and booting into it from
the GRUB menu to see what happens? :)
