But a little-known fact is that alsa comes with a util to detect your card and
install the right stuff in /etc/modules.conf
you can find it in the ./utils dir of the driver source tree.
Note also snddevices in the main dir of the driver source tree, makes all the
right /dev guys.
Apolgies for not reading better the first time!
