Thanks! That works better, but now alsaconf fails with the
ALSA driver (version 0.9.0beta4) is already running.
Setting the PCM volume to 100% and the Master output volume to
amixer: Unable to find simple control '',0: Success
Could not initialize the mixer, the card was probably
not detected correctly.
Then if I manually modprobe each of the aliases that alsaconf
has made for me in /etc/modutils/alsa I can get it to the point
that sound *appears* to work... that is apps no longer complain
about a missing device, the devfs device tree appears to all be
there... but.... still no actual sound.
