i have one of this on my laptop ... AFAIK it is compatible, but i
couldn't make it work as a sound blaster.

after one try, another try, and another ... etc... i installed ALSA ...
and it works veeeery good :)
you need to download one of the lasts version, b'cos the via82xxxxx
chipset is supported from version 0.5.x ... but AFAIK it's _not_
supported on the .deb package that comes with potato ... but i'm not sure
about it ...
the only problem is that the hardware volume control and the software
mixer are not related, so if you turn down the volume with the SW mixer
and later you modify the volume with the HW control, you obtain a noisy
memory of the way you modify the volume the last time ...
