    Sound problem on lenovo r61 using Ubuntu 8.10

    am using UBUNTU 8.10 on Lenovo r61.around 2 weeks ago my sound stopped working (most probably after an update,don't remember exactly when).
    These are some of the things that i tried :
    	Autodetect did not have any sound with test button.
    	ALSA - Advanced LINUX Sound Architecture NO SOUND either
    	OSS - Open Sound System does not have sound.
    I typed alsamixer in terminal and master was set to 100 and these where the things it said

    Pulseaudio has always given me nightmares.

    I found the following HOWTOs on the net, check them

    Try to kill the pulseaudio daemon
    pulseaudio -k
    and then try to restart it

    pulseaudio -D -vvv
    If the above two commands don't work then maybe the configuration files have been borked. Check the above 3 links for getting it right.

    thanjs a lot

    Part C: Intrepid Ibex (8.10)
    Follow the steps in this section only if you are running the Intrepid Ibex release.
    Disclaimer: Currently there are no updated packages for Intrepid in my PPA (except for an updated nspluginwrapper package for i386 users). I have decided to keep this step in the guide in case I upload any important updates that will not make it into the official repositories. I will never upload any "risky" packages (i.e. highly untested backports), only upgrades that seem compelling and relatively stable.

    1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list:

    $ gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    If they don't already exist, add the following lines to the end of this file and save:

    # PulseAudio Fixes -
    deb intrepid main
    deb-src intrepid main

    2. Update your repositories and upgrade packages:

    $ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    this did the trick.
