Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

If I run ubuntu-bug and choose the 'Sound/audio related problems' option I see a popup saying

 This troubleshooter currently only works for the Ubuntu flavours that use PulseAudio. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I'm using an (as of today) up to date 11.04 release, that was upgraded from a 10.10 mythbuntu install. Even though I don't have pulse audio installed, I would expect the application to fail more gracefully by falling back to a generic bug reporting mode.

This bug was fixed in the package apport-symptoms - 0.12

apport-symptoms (0.12) natty; urgency=low

  [ David Henningson ]
  * audio.py:
    - Audio: fix crash when selecting "Internal Speaker"
    - Fall back to ALSA if PulseAudio is not installed (LP: #733112)
    - Rename Sound_symptom to Symptom_type for cosmetic reasons.
