ES1370/1 drivers for VMware sound not included

Bug #192435 reported by Tim Hull on 2008-02-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Currently, the linux-ubuntu-modules package for the "virtual" kernel type used on virtual machines doesn'tinclude the ES1370/1 drivers used for the sound card that VMware emulates. As a result, when using this kernel with VMware productsyou get no sound. Could the proper modules be included in the package such that sound works? As it stands, I have to build my own kernelto get both vmhgfs (which is included in the "virtual" kernel) and sound.
