Good evening Mr Wizard. I havn't gotten around to downloading Intrepid yet (on
dialup say no more), but HH didn't have pulseaudio installed as default, and
that could be the fly in the ointment. It may be worth temporarily disabling
it with an apt-get remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, which will mean that your
sound apps now access Alsa directly. I'm presuming that Intrepid has
Pulseaudio installed as default.
Can you post a bit of output from the following, just to see if the card is
lspci -v (just the bit for the soundcard)
lsmod | grep snd
