Thank you Willem. I wore out my googler, but somehow missed that info.
Easier to just get another sound card I guess.

A quick visit to google show that debian, of which Ubuntu is a derivitive, removed the required kernel module because of some license issue.
The module required seem to be: snd-cs46xx.
It looks like there is a lot of information to solve this by doing a search for "download kernel module snd-cs46xx".
It is a non-free module.
You would likely have to get the code and build it against your current kernel.
HTH, Willem
