Thanks Chris Tillman for your reply,

I tried to use modconf but I couldn't find the dmasound driver in the list.
Also pointing the modconf source to the installer/driver disk didn't work.

When I boot up in kernel benh10, I can see the following boot message:

dmasound_pmac: Awacs/Screamer Code Mfct: 1 Rev 4

which looks like the driver is installed.

And further down during bootup it sais:

dmasound modprobe: Can't locate module dmasound

So it looks like the module is not present.

So I did two new kernel compilations. The first during `make menuconfig'
with the choice of the DMA sound drivers as modules (M). And the second with
the choice of the DMA sound drivers as part of the kernel (y,*).
In both cases the messages from above appear and the sound doesn't work.

I did the compilation like: make menuconfig, make clean, make dep, make
vmlinux, make modules, make modules_install.

Does anybody have an idea?

Is it a bug?
