This is a laptop. Audio CD sound doesn't work at all, all other sounds work.

I'm aware of this. But some applications don't allow to set audio output 
device, and with the first channel being used by KDE's sounds (i believe), it 
just becomes hassle.

I could provide a small donation, around 50 euros. Obviously not for the work 
itself as its not enough, but rather for a sign of good will to anyone who 
can pick this up. We all need DragonFly moving forward :) 

Perhaps we should set up a donation system on the website?
