This laptop has a VIA Audio Controller, and the
via_audio82cxxx driver detects the audio controller.
Playing sound "looks like" it works, but no sound
comes out of the laptop, either PCM or from the
CD-ROM drive. I have fiddled with the mixer settings
to no end, with no result.

The only thing in the kernel log that seems abnormal
Nov 30 21:39:45 presario kernel: via_audio: ignoring
drain playback error -512
I can enable the proc device information and let you
know what that says (it seems to be disabled by
default in the mainline kernel, with no CONFIG option
to enable it).
Let me know if you need any additional info.
