Public bug reported:

Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 kernel-image-2.6.15-19-386-di (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Just installed Dapper Flight 5 (with latest updates) on a Dell Inspiron
9400, and there is no sound.

It appears to discover all the information, install the drivers etc.,
however, no sound comes out. I tried all the possible sound systems
(alsa, esd, etc.), none work. Also, the microphone reads nothing as

I'll provide all the necessary configuration output on request.
