Hi, All! I read through many of the posts here, but I'm not sure if my issue is unique or not... Yesterday morning I was prompted to upgrade to most recent FGLRX driver, then reboot. After reboot audio devices were missing, both motherboard (primary) and HDMI audio (not used). After second reboot to troubleshoot my situation I found the the graphics performance was degraded to slideshow levels, and audio still does not function.

It would appear that since my audio and graphics were working fine with the previous driver, I should not have 'upgraded' at all. I see from what has been posted that it just seems to be an issue of scripting the ATi Catalyst install in such a manner to prevent a possible exploit taking place also overlooked that the distribution of the driver might need to check more than one place for resources.

I'm just wondering though if anyone else had issues with audio, and if so, whether those issues were resolved by the latest fix in the Ubuntu repositories as noted above. Thanks!
