I did a clean install of 12.10, when I open Sound Settings in gnome the only device in the list is "Dummy Output", and sound is not working.
Sound worked fine out of the box in 12.04
I ran alsamixer, it says my card is "HDA Intel", and chip is "Realtek ALC880". The alsamixer playback output was set to mute at first, unmuting did not fix.
It looks like Ubuntu is finding my audio device correctly.
My motherboard is an Albatron PX915G-Pro, am I correct in assuming that the alsa driver for this device is snd-intel-hda? It's kinda hard to see on this alsa page http://www.alsa-project.org/main/ind...x:Vendor-Intel

Pulling my hair out on this one.
