Comment 2 for bug 336125

To be more precise: Audio PLAYBACK is completely broken: no way to produce a sound in my system. Not that I have tested capture, tough.

Mixer settings seems all ok, but you can verify this on the alsa-info.sh output.

IMPORTANT: this is almost for sure kernel related as the old kernel 2.6.27-9.5 from ubuntu 8.10 DOES work and can be considered the last working kernel. I remember the regression started with kernel 2.6.27-11.* : I din't consider that much at the time, as the 2.6.27-11 kernel were just an optional upgrade. Anyway, it's even a ubuntu 8.10 regression for 2.6.27-11 kernel user, so some users may decide to nominate this bug even for that release.
