I would like to bring attention to Bug #122560,
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/122560, which currently has 4
duplicates, but it deals with no sound for those that have an ICH8 Family HD
Audio Controller and Gutsy.
I recently upgraded to a Dell Latitude D820 which has this chipset in the
audio and in Gutsy I didn't have sound. I followed the advice in this bug
comment (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/%2Bbug/122560/comments/68) and am
able to solve the problem.
For those that don't take the time to read either link, the solution is to
download the alsa-driver-1.015rc3.tar.bz2 from the ftp site, and add it to
your modules. While this is great that it solves I am wondering if we could
get this updated version of alsa-driver in, thus solving the bug for everyone
that has reported it, and will report it once 7.10 goes live.
