Are multiple sound card issues still reported?
I browsed a couple of WhisperBack reports and I saw several reports with multiple sound cards. For example:
======= content of /proc/asound/cards ======= 0 [PCH ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH HDA Intel PCH at 0xf7100000 irq 3 1 [NVidia ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia HDA NVidia at 0xf7080000 irq 5
I know that @numbat is on duty this week but I guessed he wouldn't have don't enough help desk to know these kinds of things. You would :)
