Well, on my ThinkPad z60m, I have to manually adjust channels to +248
from the default as it's too low. With the default I jack all available
sliders in GNOME volume control and/or equivalent in KDE and XFCE to max
and still can't here anything until I manually adjust in mixerctl AND
get it to save state on shutdown.

Whilst it "works", it's hardly "optimal".
