ALi M5455 on Gentoo


I have an ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 with an ALi M5455 onboard audio card. I've tried several different things to get it working, but nothing has gotten any sound so far. Kernel is 2.6.21-gentoo-r4

Relevant part of lspci:
Code:
00:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: ALi Corporation M5455 PCI AC-Link Controller Audio Device (rev 20)
And dmesg:
Code:
AC'97 1 does not respond - RESET
AC'97 1 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer.
Unable to initialize codec #1
intel8x0_measure_ac97_clock: measured 54884 usecs
intel8x0: clocking to 48000

Okay, I was wrong. The sound is working, but it's very quiet. I had to turn all the volume settings in alsamixer all the way up to hear it, and it's still relatively quiet. Anyone know how to fix this?

Does anybody know why the card is so quiet. It never seemed this quiet under Windows. I think these dmesg events might have something to do with it:
Code:
AC'97 1 does not respond - RESET
AC'97 1 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer.
Unable to initialize codec #1
intel8x0_measure_ac97_clock: measured 54861 usecs
intel8x0: clocking to 48000
