I recently upgraded my Dell studio xps laptop (which shipped with 9.04)
to 9.10. I now have no sound. No soundcard is detected:
2.6.28-16-generic is a jaunty (9.04) kernel, not an karmic (9.10) kernel:
The latest karmic kernel is: 2.6.31-17-generic
So, either you purposely booted to the jaunty kernel at the grub menu,
or your upgrade didn't complete properly. My _guess_ is the latter.

I think that you should describe how you went about the 'upgrade' & then
we can try to sort it out from there. Also, please provide the exact
Dell Studio XPS model that you have.
And: no need to bcc me directly on your reply, I read the list regularly :-)
