I thank you martin, that cracked it, atleast for now, haven't restarted
the computer yet, but I did modprobe snd-powermac, and that loaded all
the snd modules, and then I changes the group id of /dev/dsp so that my
user's group had permission to it, and long story short three logout's
later kde finally uttered sound on startup and did not give me the
/dev/dsp not found or /dev/dsp (permission Denied) errors. looks like
there's a lot of subtle little differences in debian and ubuntu, as it
looks like I am going to have to change o lot of group id's just so I
can access them without being root.
With ALSA/Debian I have the issue that I have to add snd to
/etc/modules manually. /etc/init.d/alsa won't do anything
otherwise, as /proc/asound does not exist.
Not sure if the init script is from debian or alsa. This happens
on all hardware platforms. In your case, a
should load the sound driver for you. Run alsamixer to unmute it.

this is probably a totally newbie question, but I have just switched to
debian from ubuntu, and am working on a self compiled 2.6.11 upstream
kernel. I compiled all the sound stuff as modules, but I do not know
what file to edit to load them, or even how to start. KDE reports no
/dev/dsp on startup, and when I run lsmod it shows no snd or anything
like that, so could someone point me in the right direction to start
setting up sound on this thing?
if specs are needed this is a G4 Dual 450 (Gigabit Ethernet model) and I
am not sure what the sound card is.
