I've got a tibook G4 running sid and benh's latest kernels. I've
loaded the dmasound_pmac module and it seems to be OK. However I have
lots of troubles making it work. For instance, when KDE starts, it
Sound server fatal error:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
Can't set playform format(_format = 17, asked driver to give 16, got 32)
Playing from apps like videolan often results in a couple of seconds
of very scratchy audio, followed by static, followed by silence.
Mixers seems to have no effect once the silence appears (everything's
muted). I don't know what to try at this point.
dmasound_pmac appears to load OK:
dmasound_pmac: Awacs/Screamer Codec Mfct: 1 Rev 3
dmasound_pmac: found Keylargo rev 2 or later - H/W byte-swap disabled
PowerMac Screamer DMA sound driver rev 016 installed
Core driver edition 01.06 : PowerMac Built-in Sound driver edition 00.06
Write will use 4 fragments of 32768 bytes as default
Read will use 4 fragments of 32768 bytes as default
Any assistance appreciated!
