Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-23-generic

I'm currently running a downgraded version of the 2.6.24 kernel stack on my ubuntu 8.04lts x86_64. namely, I've hold the following packages to version 2.4.24-22:

utente@laptop:~$ aptitude search ~nlinux~n2.6.24-22~i
ih linux-headers-2.6.24-22 - Header files related to Linux kernel version 2.6.24
ih linux-headers-2.6.24-22-generic - Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.24 on x86/x86_64
ihA linux-image-2.6.24-22-generic - Linux kernel image for version 2.6.24 on x86/x86_64
ih linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-22-generic - Non-free Linux 2.6.24 modules on x86/x86_64
ih linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-22-generic - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.24 on x86/x86_64

this is the only solution I've found in order to avoid audio issues originated _after_ the 2.6.24-23 modules upgrade. with 2.6.24-23 I'm able to listen to start/stop sounds on my box but all streaming sound is now muted (e.g. internet streaming or skype calls). I've discovered this issue now because I'm not used to enable audio on my laptop unless a skype conference is scheduled!

this is my lspci:

while this is the detailed lspci (-vv) for the audio device:

the ubuntu is a 8.04lts version updated via "aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade". the kernel stack is the only one downgraded series of debs. I've also some custom packages (skype static, ooo 3.0.x from launchpad and virtualbox from sun site).
