Hm. I confess I don't use my DF machine for multimedia, but I do load the
sound driver at boot, well, just because I can :o)

vendor = 'VIA Technologies Inc'
device = 'VT8233/33A/8235/8237/8251 AC97 Enhanced Audio Controller - the
8251 controller is different'
class = multimedia
subclass = audio
The trouble I see on my DF machine is that userland apps like
gnome-volume-control complain about 'unknown mixer device'.
Do you see any errors when you load snd_via8233 from a command prompt?
