I have a client that uses the ATOM processor, and for some reason I don't get any sound out of it. The sound card is seen, and according to the mixer, there is nothing muted and the volume is up on everything. If I boot to 10.04, the sound card works without issue.
I decided that perhaps a kernel upgrade would be in order, since for this sound card (integrated, ICH7 STAC92xx) there appears to be some issues with the kernel driver. I upgraded the kernel using apt-get, as well as copying the files over and manually linking them, and it fails every time with something like the following message:
Server Authorization directory (daemon/ServAuthDir) is set to /var/lib/gdm but is not owned by user root and group gdm. Please correct the ownership or GDM configuration and restart GDM.
If I change the ownership, then I get a permissions error... fix that, it finally dies with an unknown error.
Is there something I am missing here? Why does changing the kernel cause GDM not to boot correctly?
Thanks for any help in advance!
