No Sound on the student PCs (unresolved)

The students have new PCs, but no sound. The kmix program shows no devices to control. And the sound card isn't recognized either: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Unknown device 293e (rev 02).

So we update the PCI specs:update-pciids. Now lspci shows the following output:00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02).

Perhaps the hardware detection system can now handle our device... Nope. Work in progress.
