For the CMI 9880L chipset, the azx driver is the one I
have been advised to use. I have spent the last couple
of weeks trying to get it working. After boot, I use
rmmod to remove all snd and sound modules, then use:

modprobe snd-azx
modprobe snd-seq
modprobe snd-pcm-oss
modprobe snd-mixer-oss

When snd-azx is loaded I get a click in the speakers,
but as soon as I try anything with sound (Mixer, CD,
etc.) the system locks up tight and requires a reboot.

I've been looking for documentation on parameters that
might be required, and haven't been able to find any.

Any information about configuration for this chipset is
appreciated.
