I haven't tried switching to ALSA yet.

I really would like to (a) be sure that the i810_audio driver really
is inoperable with the setup I have, (b) have some reason to believe
that the ALSA drivers will work, before switching drivers.

It seems to me that there should be some way to *troubleshoot* this
problem, rather than just trying one thing after another until I either
find something that works or just give up - I mean, isn't that the
advantage to having open source?

Is the "i810_audio" driver known to be inoperative with my combination
of processor/chipset/etc., or is the ALSA setup known to work?

people at their private email addresses; my apologies for the
