I can sympathize - I've had a nightmare trying to get headphones to work on my cloudbook in 9.04.

Some stuff that might help to see whats going on:

cat /proc/asound/version
To will let you know which alsa you have.

lsmod Tto see if you have modules with sound (snd)

aplay -l
To see if your sound card is recognized.

Good luck!
