The problem is that there is no sound. There is a little trick that some
people have suggested: open alsamixer and set Head Phone Jack Sense and Line
Jack Sense to 'Mute'. But that hasn't made a different.
system-config-soundcard has detected the card but when I click the 'Play Test
Sound' button, there is only silence. Volume level is about 3/4 up.
I read somewhere that this is an unsolved issue in Thinkpads. Another unsolved
issue seems to be, that I can't get the machine to sleep. It worked once,
only once, but when I woke it up again, it went to shut itself down (clean).
This is one area where I must say, Apple did a great job with OS X and their
Powerbooks. My powerbook goes to sleep within less than a second and wake up
PS. Trying sound from KDE instead of GNOME - same (no) result.
