I do but the only audio files I have on board here are Ogg Vorbis. They
should always work. I just did a "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" which put
the latest kernel, modules etc on and results are unfortunately the
same, no sound except for the drum rattle at the login screen and the
fanfare when Gnome starts up. I am too tired for further work here so
I'm shutting this laptop down and going to bed, see all tomorrow and
many thanks.
