Until we figure this out, I suggest that folks don't go out and buy new
hardware. It seems that free drivers have been deleted as well as
nonfree drivers. I do have a sound card listed in the FSF site that
uses the snd-intel8x0 driver, which is contained in the
linux-ubuntu-modules package
As Brian said, someone needs to go through this package and take out
all the nonfree drivers before we can put it back in the repository.
It's too bad this just came out now. A lot of new folks who just found
out about gNewSense through the 2.0 release are going to get turned off
by not having sound.
