Bug#606984: Bug #606984


I know you have been busy with other things lately, but I did notice your comment about sound bug #606984 that has been afflicting my Powermac G4 digital audio and I want to give you a little update on what I have been doing.

I finally secured an ATI Radeon 7500 for this machine so the video works and installed the latest daily build #9.  You are right.  The blacklisting of snd-aoa is not working.

When I looked at /etc/modprobe.d I found two files:  blacklist.conf and alsa-base-blacklist.conf, neither of which contained the blacklisted files you referred to.  So, I manually added them to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base-blacklist.conf file.  Now, the file reads:

# Uncomment these entries in order to blacklist unwanted modem drivers
# blacklist snd-atiixp-modem
# blacklist snd-intel8x0m
# blacklist snd-via82xx-modem
# Comment this entry in order to load snd-pcsp driver
blacklist snd-pcsp
blacklist snd-aoa
blacklist snd-aoa-codec-tas
blacklist snd-aoa-fabric-layout
blacklist snd-aoa-i2sbus
blacklist snd-aoa-soundbus
# Comment this entry in order to load pcspkr driver

Rebooting gave me working sound.  I used the sound preference to turn on a sound theme.  The Switches tab indicates that PC Speaker is working.

cat /proc/asound/cards gave me:

 0 [Tumbler        ]: PMac Tumbler - PowerMac Tumbler
                     PowerMac Tumbler (Dev 14) Sub-frame 0

So, the correct sound module is showing up.  Right?
