Well, things got changed between 8.04 and 10.4, especially regarding
audio. Another reason to not make such a huge jump all at once. Open a
terminal and type "pavucontrol" and use that now. I love pulse when it's
up and working. Some have had problems with it, but it's usually when
alsamixer has stuff muted. So, try pavucontrol first. It should work. If
not, open alsamixer in a terminal and see what is turned off that keeps
pulse from doing it's thing. It's a whole new day in 10.4, but "old and
busted" might not work in "new and shiny". Expect more hiccups and a
learning curve in the new.
