I don't think the audio interface code has been updated anytime
recently.  several things to try:

1) try different sample rate:

     > chuck --srate48000 -l
     > chuck --srate44100 -l

2) make sure ALSA is running, the best way (I know of) is just to 

     (as root)
     > /etc/init.d/alsasound restart

     and make sure the levels are set right
     > alsamixer

3) if the above no work, there could be another incompatibility that we
should track down.

What linux are you running?
