I think the powerpc item was always slightly wrong. I suggest (sorry,
don't have the source to hand):
-the snd-powermac module is no longer loaded by default as it will lock up some systems; you will need to add it to /etc/modules manually
+the snd-powermac module is no longer loaded by default on all systems as it will lock up some models; you may need to add it to /etc/modules manually
Note that the hw-detect changelog entry was:
* discover-mac-io.sh: snd-powermac can lock up G5 iMac and Power Mac.
... and the code reads:
elif [ "$name" = awacs ]; then
# probably best to go for ALSA
elif [ "$name" = davbus ] || [ "$name" = i2s-a ]; then
for child in "$dir"/*; do
if [ -f "$child/name" ]; then
childname="$(cat "$child/name" 2>/dev/null || true)"
if [ "$childname" = sound ]; then
# Loading snd-powermac locks up G5 systems
if [ "$name" != i2s-a ]; then
