Notes

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

Summary

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.

I'm using Linux Mint Debian edition 201204 and almost all work out of the box (except for the suspend/hibernate), before I was using Ubuntu 11.04 and too work very well.

M.K., I have the exact same experience with FC 10 and believe I saw the same with Ubuntu…
