Downgrading to linux kernel 188.8.131.52 solves the problem. Keep the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="radeon.audio=1" in /etc/default/grub When starting the system, in GRUB2 menu, select "Advanced options" and some old linux kernel to start (3.5.0-30-generic in my case). If the sound works, remove the files of the 3.8 linux kernel from the /boot directory (need ...
