Here are the notes I made when I got sound working on hoary:

Installed these backported debs



cd /usr/src
sudo wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/alsa-driver-1.0.9a.tar.bz2
sudo tar -jxvf alsa-driver-1.0.9a.tar.bz2
cd alsa-driver-1.0.9a
sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install


sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel

Then run alsamixer and turn everything up

So yeah it was the hda-intel driver. I only had to modprobe it once. Sound just
worked on the next boot and thenafter.
