Or an indication of the problem.  Certainly no card detected there.

So 10de:0059 is the PCI id of the sound chip.

I get:
alias:          pci:v000010DEd000001B1sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
alias:          pci:v000010DEd0000003Asv*sd*bc*sc*i*
alias:          pci:v000010DEd0000006Asv*sd*bc*sc*i*

alias:          pci:v000010DEd0000008Asv*sd*bc*sc*i*
alias:          pci:v000010DEd000000DAsv*sd*bc*sc*i*
alias:          pci:v000010DEd000000EAsv*sd*bc*sc*i*

which includes 0059, which yours does not.  I am running 2.6.10 which
has alsa 1.06.  If you are running 2.6.8 then you only have alsa 1.04
which I suspect does not include support for your chip.  I guess you
should upgrade to the 2.6.10 kernel and it should start working.

Upgrade kernel to one with a new enough alsa version to have your chip
