Bug Description

Some audio devices don't seem to provide a corresponding entry under /proc/asound/card# which results in the following stack trace. So, Checkbox should simply make a best effort and ignore devices which don't provide this information.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/checkbox/", line 89, in fire
