Hi Robert
I've taken this off list, to limit traffic,

Firstly I can assure u the  saa7134 card works perfectly under ubuntu, 
and as stated, without recompiling the kernel.
As stated the M stands for Module(Modular) which means that when the 
kernel detects this hardware, it will self load the driver.

So to start, please send me your:
lsmod  outputs.

Then I can try to help u, once again my asus saa7134 works well, with sound.
