Charlie, ran off, so if I can butt in, I might have a similar or not
problem. I had great sound on this system for 7.10. Starting with 8.04
and now 8.10, it is flat flakey. Usually some parts of the system
work. Right now rhythm box works but I have no sound in Firefox (I
guess Flash). I have fiddled previously with pulseaudio, but have not
gotten a permanent solution.

I get a bunch of white noise type sound.
