was wondering how this was getting on and how as quoted earlier ("Or
maybe you simply have a new sound chip which isn't "snapper" ?") does
one know that the soundchip is "snapper"? Do you have to look in the
/proc device-tree and if so, where in particualr. I'm new to all this
actually hence my question.
