Bug Description

Since I installed the new 7870 XT card (Tahiti based) I had no more sound.

I use the beta AMD drivers for display (steam user).
nael@zeus-linux:~$ dpkg -l | grep fgl
ii fglrx-amdcccle-experimental-9 2:9.010-0ubuntu0.3 Catalyst Control Center for the AMD graphics accelerators
ii fglrx-experimental-9 2:9.010-0ubuntu0.3 Experimental AMD binary Xorg driver and kernel module

Pulseaudio is crashing when I log :

Your Radeon HD 7870 have 6 hdmi convertors and pin complexes
