No battery. But the volume through to the speakers suggests it is
working ok (see later post)

Thanks Charles, I hadn't spotted mixerctl. I read audio and a few
other man pages looking for xrefs. I did compile xmmix and that got
me to the point where I at least know the connections are right and
the OS is talking to the card etc (see my 2nd or 3rd post on this).
In case anyone is interested, this is mixerctl -a output
: sjg:157; mixerctl -a
I'm not sure what all of those are - man page doesn't say.
