thanks for the guide. Here's a problem I ran into:
michael@michael-laptop:/etc/modprobe.d$ sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/oss-compat, it will be ignored in a future release.
I even made a copy of oss-compat with the file name oss-compat.conf and it still gives the same error.
BTW I'm running pulse audio version 0.9.14ubuntu13
