/proc/acpi/processor/CPU1/info says:
processor id:            0
acpi id:                 1
bus mastering control:   yes
power management:        no
throttling control:      no
limit interface:         no

the manual for my AsRock K7S41 motherboard says i can monitor CPU 
also Ubuntu Device Manager does not see the type of my processor
(AMD Sempron 2200+) and i have still no sound.
maybe this cheap hardware is just not supported by ubuntu ?

kind regards     philippe
