Bug Description


[Seen in Edubuntu 11.10 LTSP configuration, server lacks soundcard]

It appears that all valid arguments in lts.conf related to sound isn't honored at all by fat clients.
Nor is the defaults of volume settings at 90% in ltsp-init-common in the case of no sound arguments in lts.conf
(also tried a couple of supposedly valid translated channel variable names with no success)

( SOUND_DAEMON : haven't tried all possible configurations with this one)

All settings tested; Y /true /N /False and three different integers between 10 and 90 for each volume
Tested on a variety of machines using the following lts.conf:
(all machines in FAT client mode, all with different chipsets/soundcards)

  LDM_SESSION="gnome-session --session=gnome-fallback"
# FAT_RAM_THRESHOLD=500 "this setting made 512MB clients go thin" reverting to default (300(?))
# LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8
