Ok, Nigel, thanks for asking. I do read some good news here as well. I can buy a pcmcia card and have sound with linux then? Can this card use my internal laptop speakers? And, more importantly, which card should I buy then? Maybe I will do so. But I'll try to be a little patient first and wait a few weeks and pray my bug gets fixed from Alsa's bug tracker.
