Actually you can get sound working pretty easily. Just download the source for the latest alsa driver (1.0.14) and then apply these 5 patches, as mentioned on the thinkwiki page for the AD1984 driver, in order:

http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kern...patch_analog.c
http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kern...patch_analog.c
http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kern...patch_analog.c
http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kern...patch_analog.c
http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kern...patch_analog.c

If you don't know how to apply patches, you can just copy and paste these commands into a console in the working directory alsa-kernel/ under the alsa driver source directory:

Code:
wget -O - http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel/raw-diff/ed48e4edc677/pci/hda/patch_analog.c | patch -p1 
wget -O - http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel/raw-diff/45179b325c8e/pci/hda/patch_analog.c | patch -p1
wget -O - http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel/raw-diff/958b39f3e8dd/pci/hda/patch_analog.c | patch -p1
wget -O - http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel/raw-diff/47ca87407c84/pci/hda/patch_analog.c | patch -p1
wget -O - http://hg.alsa-project.org/alsa-kernel/raw-diff/ca37aeeeb0ea/pci/hda/patch_analog.c | patch -p1
then

./configure --with-cards=hda-intel; make; make install

and you've got yourself a working snd_hda_intel module.

You have to download the alsa driver source from their website and extract it. Here's a direct link:

ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/drive...1.0.14.tar.bz2

Then you'll see that there's an alsa-kernel subdirectory in the extracted code, where you have to run those commands from.

By the way, I realized that what I downloaded was the 1.0.14rc4 version of the driver, whereas they've now release 1.0.14. I only know the process I described above to work with 1.0.14rc4. I tried the newer driver, but for some reason with that module whenever I tried to access the audio device the process would freeze.
