For the audio in the Satellite L35 to work you will need to install ALSA version 1.0.14rc4 or higher. At this time there is no Linux distribution which includes this as standard so you will need to install it manually. You will also need to add the following like into your /etc/modprobe.conf (or your distro's equivalent) file:
options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-digout
The Toshiba Satellite L35 currently has issues with sound under Linux however this can be fixed with some configuration work. Future Linux distribution will likely resolve this issue.
