The 'snd' module is one of the ALSA modules. I complied the alsa-0.9
source deb package. Once this is done and the modules are installed,
they should appear in /lib/[kernelversion]/modules/alsa. Then fire up
modconf, uninstall the dma modules. At the bottom of the top menu is a
menu item 'alsa'. Choose it. Then choose snd-powermac, snd-pcm and snd
pcm-oss. This will install the relevant modules including 'snd' into
It worked for me anyway!
