According to the Linux on Dell forum the sound driver I should be using is
according to the Eve-online config utility my system is as follows
cpu: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5250 @ 1.50GHz
videocard_manufacturer: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
videocard_type: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 965GM 4.1.3002 x86/MMX/SSE2
videocard_driver_version: 1.4 Mesa 7.0.1
soundcard: HDA Intel at 0xfe9fc000 irq 2
soundcard_driver: ALSA Version 1.0.14
x_version: Xorg Version 1.3.0
distro: Debian lenny/sid

the ubuntu on Dell forum also showed lspci info which matches mine exactly

The question I have is: am I running the proper sound card driver.
According to the Eve-online config utility it appears that I am not.
If I am not running the correct sound card driver; how do I install the correct one and why is lspci listing the exact same info that is on the Ubuntu on dell page.
And of course why dont I have any sound.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
