do you have external speakers plugged in? or are you expecting sound
out of the internal speaker?  if the latter then your right you don't
hear anything because the internel speaker does not work under
GNU/Linux.  (i don't know why)

i have a blue G3 too and if i plug headphones into the sound out on
the back i can hear the system beep and anything i dump into
/dev/audio.  (i have dmasound compiled into the kernel) but the
internel speaker does not work.
