I tried that and received the same error as before. However... As it
turns out, there's an option to disable the onboard audio device in
BIOS. I switched it off, and now chuck works just fine.

I'm guessing that chuck must try to query all present devices, which
is why it failed every time, even when I specified a different device.
How's that for a rare bug!
