i can't speak for the original poster, but the internal speaker in my
blue G3 has never worked, but sound does work if i plug headphones
into the sound out.  

cat english.au > /dev/audio does fine for a test.  i use 2.2.19 with
dmasound compiled in.  aumix does nothing for activating the internal
speaker.  way way back i remember being told that the way its wired in
is proprietary and undocumented so the Linux sound drivers could not
support it.  that was quite some time ago however.
