I suppose I now have to take back my statement "this is not a Debian problem".
All the same there are a lot of problems with hda intel, as there are many,
many variations of it.
I'm glad you've got the problem fixed Anthony, but quite why Ubuntu gives you
sound, but Debian has no sound is a bit perplexing. It possibly could be
something to do with the difference in kernel versions for that module I
suppose. My Kubuntu is using a 2.6.12 kernel, but Debian Sarge/Etch are using
the 2.6.8, 2.6.11, and on Etch most recently 2.6.17.
Anyway. Glad you got sounds, and the wireless working. That is a bonus.
