Sorry for not getting back sooner. Could you try alsa-1.0.16rc2 with
the following configuration:
./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-debug=detect && make
&& sudo make install
After it is installed, type "dmesg" and look for the alsa output
(line-outs, speakers, etc). Copy that into an email and send it to me,

No problem is insoluble in all conceivable circumstances.
