Requested by: Martin Schmidkunz (mschmidkunz)

Currently the sound card module in YaST hides many options within an
"Others" menu button. When adding a sound card the user needs to choose
between three configuration ways: automatic, normal and advanced. It is
very difficult for the user to choose the appropriate way for him.
Ideas for Improvement:
* Moving "Volume" and "Start Sequencer" to the "Edit" section.
* "Set As Primary Card" is now visible at once to the user
* "Play Test Sound" is integrated into the "Edit" section
Workflow for "Add" a new sound card:
* The user chooses only the vendor and the model.
* All the other settings (volume and some advanced settings) can be
adjusted via "Edit".
* Joystick settings can be done in the "Joystick" module.
Mock ups for the redesign are available at:

mschmidkunz: I believe that re-designing this module is probably a good
I hate to mix technology in design and feature discussions but in this
case... I wonder if we need to make the module Pulse audio aware.

I agree. Just open another FATE regarding Pulse Audio awareness of the
YaST module in addition to this one, ...:-)

Done, I have created 304936 to track the pulse-audio need in YaST.
