As an Ubuntu core developer (volunteer/community), I generally garden bugs related to the Linux audio stack. Please note that I am not employed by Canonical but will attempt to address concerns as quickly as possible. Thanks for understanding my incredibly demanding non-Ubuntu schedule.

If you are experiencing audio problems in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) or later, please use "ubuntu-bug alsa-base" in a Terminal/Konsole.

Current Ubuntu/Debian work: patch review; StableReleaseUpdates packaging, tracking, and verification; audio stack integration; regression harness. I blog (quite) intermittently about this work at http://drowninginbugs.blogspot.com/search/label/ubuntu I dent (quite) intermittently about this work and other bits at http://identi.ca/crimsun

comment How to determine what happened and locate the problem when my system freezes?
Following Roland's most recent comment above, make sure to edit your original question to include the link to your paste. You can also try using netconsole, which I find useful (sarah.thesharps.us/2010-03-26-09-41).

comment How do I record sound on a Thinkpad Edge 11?
This symptom is highly reminiscent of a defect report. Please use ubuntu-bug alsa-base, and, as Jorge says above, edit your question with a link to the bug report. We (the audio developers) will triage your defect report and continue here as appropriate.

You don't need to do anything. I've edited my answer above (italicized) to clarify that.

comment flashplugin-installer vs. flashplugin-nonfree vs. adobe-flashplugin
I need to clarify that the flashplugin-installer postinst script actually downloads the very plugin from archive.canonical.com not the Adobe web site. In other words, the "original" upstream tarball of the plugin is downloaded by the flashplugin-installer package.

comment Tools to diff deb-src packages between ubuntu and debian repos
Thanks for the comment. I've attempted to restructure my answer so it's more clearly split into two approaches, one mentioning the use of launchpadlib directly and another describing the process with which I'm more familiar. Regardless which approach is used, there will be some amount of scripting involved - particularly for a "distribution wide package correlation solution."
