I had a few cases of users happily jumping into synaptic at that point,
installing the apps (some kernel and alsa goes in through dependencies,
usually the wrong one) and never looking into configuring sound. Then
the message arrives: sound does not work (well, sometimes you see that
problem _after_ configuring sound, of course).
