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?
