Just installed a new Ubuntu Kernel and my front panel USB 3.0 ports won't read flash drives, now. The USB (pain to get at) ports on the back of the case work o.k. (they are USB 2.0). The front panel ports are live because the drive flashes when I put it in.
The new kernel is version 3.2.0-64.
Don't see any others reporting this yet on google.
So my board (ASUS Maximus VI Hero), has the standard front panel microphone and headphone ports. These are hooked up to a 10-1 pin AAFP, using an HD-audio compliment cord. The back ports, which are connected directly work fine, including the headphone port on the back.
UEFI is set to HDAudio for this port, so that isn't the issue.
I tried changing the front panel ports to AC97. It still gives static.I had always used HD for the ports and it worked in Ubuntu 12.04, but installing KDE somehow made it stop working permanently for that installation.From the headphones port, there is only static coming out of the left side.
I'm trying to solve a problem with sound and USB ports in Fedora 17.
After many months of trouble free operation the sound and front panel USB ports have stopped working on my Fedora 17 desktop system.
Sound does not work in any application (Mplayer, Kaffine, Firefox, etc).
Simple sound configuration, analog audio out to two speakers.
I'm not sure when, but my ubuntu machine stopped responding to front usb ports. Any device plugged into the rear of the machine work fine, but the front don't do anything. My phone won't even draw power when plugged into the front. I am using the ringtail experimental build, but they were working fine last night.
