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
# 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?
