When will we ever have an upgrade with sound that just works ?



I've been using Redhat/Fedora since RH8.

It seems that every time we get a new version sound gets broken and I
have to go through a whole complicated and convoluted troubleshooting
sequence to get it running again.

Wireless networking used to be like that and now it seems to work
release after release.  When will sound get the same attention to detail
that Wireless got ?

Sound worked just fine in F8 and F10, after some fiddling, of course.
Along comes F11 and I've got nothing, in spite of spending literally
days mucking and fiddling around.  The pundits say that the problem is
my complicated, unsupported sound card (Intel HDA), but it worked just
fine in F8 and F10 and it hasn't changed since.  If it ran fine in F8
and F10, why should it suddenly be OK to NOT run in F11 ?

The funny part of all this is the pulse audio component.  Pulse audio
seems to be bug ridden.  There doesn't seem to be any real documentation
for troubleshooting it.  And yet one gets chastised if one says they
want to remove it and run without it.

Oh, yeah... I forgot... Fedora is bleeding edge.  The funny thing is
that we've been bleeding on the sound card issues since RH8 and there
doesn't seem to be any end in sight.  And I would hardly call sound
systems leading edge in this day and age.

When (and how) will this madness end ?
