Well it could be that the cs461x driver doesn't support your particular
sound chip or that it needs you to specify certain parameters (io port, dmas
etc). A look at the alsa mailing list archives should tell you if your
wasting your time. When you try to load snd-card-cs461x are any errors
logged (use 'dmesg' to check)? Have you tried compiling alsa with the
"--with-debug=full" option? At the very least with debugging on you should
be able to determine if the driver either isn't finding a supported sound
device at all or is finding it but having trouble using it.

It will never in a million years work without snd-card-something on that
