Advanced Configuration Problems

Thanks to the help of many on this list, I've sucessfully installed Debian
on my 867 Mhz. Powerbook.  Installation & basic functionality are no
longer issues, as all of the basics are now done with and the basic system
is laid out beautifully.  So now I'm onto the more advanced stuff (sound,
MOL, etc..)  I've run into some roadblocks with sound & 3d acceleration,
however.  Since I've had such good luck with this list before, I thought
I'd ask if anybody had any ideas about these two things.

For sound, I created the file /etc/modutils/sound with the
following entries:

alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 dmasound_pmac
alias char-major-14-3 dmasound_pmac
alias /dev/dsp dmasound_pmac
alias sound-service-0-0 i2c-keywest
alias char-major-14-0 i2c-keywest
alias /dev/mixer i2c-keywest

Then, I ran 'update-modules' but got the following error:

depmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

For 3d acceleration, I added 'deb
http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-trunk-sid/ ./' to my sources.list,
ran 'apt-get install drm-trunk-module-src xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk
xlibmesa-gl1-dri-trunk', unpacked drm-trunk.tar.gz, and attempted
'make-kpkg modules-image'.  The error I get is:

dpkg-gencontrol: error: source paragraph in control info file is missing
Source line
dh_gencontrol: command returned error code 65280

If anybody knows anything I could try, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks for your
