It would help me immensely - as one of a handful of Ubuntu contributors 
who have had core developer access - if you would at least try to work 
with me to resolve your audio issues.  I understand how frustrating 
audio problems are on Linux - I've triaged them for over a decade!  I 
have outlined in previous e-mails that we need to begin with your alsa 
configuration.  You can get that information by using the 
script.  Once you execute the script, it should give you a url.  Please 
send that url.
