No. No special repo. I don't have Intrepid yet, but thought that the Ubuntu
version had Pulseaudio installed as default, and the usual means to disable
it, is to simply remove the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio package. Have you checked
in synaptic to see if the package is there?

All the above output seems fine. Have you opened alsamixer in a terminal, and
checked for items that may be muted, or sliders set to zero. The "M" key
toggles the mute/unmute.
If you upgraded from HH to Intrepid, you should still have the Hardy kernel
available. Have you tried booting using that?
