The CMI9761 AC97 was, until recently, given only experimental support in
ALSA.  The versions of ALSA available in Hoary (1.0.6 in-kernel and
1.0.8 in universe via 'alsa-source') do not properly support it.  The
good news, however, is that problems with the CMI9761 AC97 have been
fixed upstream (I have walked one Ubuntu user through installing
1.0.9rc1 and have confirmed that it does indeed work).

I will ask for alsa-source 1.0.8+1.0.9rc2-1 to be synced into universe
from Debian experimental.  Thank you for reminding me.
