Hello Joseph, Sorry for not replying sooner, I was on a leave for 2 weeks, so I'm catching up with this.
Question: I'm not sure where to get kernel 3.11.0-7 from, on my saucy installation I have 3.11.0-11-generic, and on the precise installation I'm not sure where to install it from (I can not find 3.11.0-7 on http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/). In any case, I tested audio on my saucy main install with nessita@dali:~$ uname -a Linux dali 3.11.0-11-generic #17-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 19:42:04 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux and audio playback breaks as soon as I open mumble and join a channel. Happy to start the bisect with the kernels you'll link. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1201528 Title: [INTEL DP55WG,Realtek ALC889] - Audio Playback Unavailable Status in “alsa-driver” package in Ubuntu: New Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Status in “alsa-driver” source package in Raring: New Status in “linux” source package in Raring: Incomplete Status in “alsa-driver” source package in Saucy: New Status in “linux” source package in Saucy: Incomplete Bug description: This is a fresh upgrade to raring. During the weekend, I updated from precise to quantal, and from there to raring. I did not use sound while the system was in quantal, so no idea if the bug was present there as well. The symptom is: * after some period of sound usage, playback stops working What I mean with sound usage is: I tried having a meeting with: mumble, skype, and google hangout, and in all three cases, audio input/outout will work just fine for ~5 minutes, and the playback just dies (people tell me they keep listening to me, so mic works fine). The only way to solve this is by rebooting. After one of the reboots, I was able to play a 20 minute video with mplayer with no further issue. Then opened skype and after ~3-5 minute talk, audio playback died again.
