If anyone else is experiencing sound problems (headphone jack sense disabled, audio stops working, both audio in internal + external speakers on at the same time etc), I found this solution. Works for me (Hda intel + ALC269 codec). May solve other audio issues aswell.
Find sound card codec
Find it in the model list:Code:cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Edit alsa-base.conf (janty + lucid)
Append this line to the end of the file and replace MODEL with one of the sound card models found in the .txt-file. Using 'auto' (=auto) works best for me (default BIOS settings for hda-intel).Code:sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
Reboot.Code:options snd-hda-intel model=MODEL
After reboot, external speaker volume was set to 0 %. Fixed this using 'alsamixer'. No more problems with audio (hopefully).

I have just updated my computer like lucaraze's post: poulsbo drivers, kernel, suspend, plymount.... and I have found a error about fn-keys and kde (gnome is ok):
-Wireless and touchpad work good
-brightness doesn't work. (
-Volume works bad-> When you pulse a key, computer thinks you have pulsed a lot.
Hibertation,resolution,mplayer,vlc,compiz.... work now, but I can't see plymount correctly
¿is it posible kwin's effects with opengl?
Thanks for your work and i'm sorry for my english!!!!!!!!!!

i'm using Lucazade iso (thanks a lot, you're my new hero!) but i have a question. Can you watch video in youtube or any flash video in a resolution up to 360p? In 360p is not very fluid but it works, in 480 or upper it's impossible to watch and when i try fullscreen the audio is ok but the screen becames white.
Is this only my problem or it's because of the poulsbo driver?
Thanks for your hard work and sorry for my english.
this post.. there is an alternative way to watch video in youtube without flash (using mplayer-vaapi embedded inside firefox)
Works very well... up to 720p without glitches. Flash instead is not gma500 friendly.
Just a thing.. rememeber these drivers are a community effort.. i/we wasn't able to fix poulsbo drivers without all the community help... really!
