ALSA Installation on a Alu Powerbook
First: I have an Alu Powerbook 1.25MHz (released 2003-09) with Debian testing,
a 2.6.7-powerpc-kernel and KDE 3.2
I apt-getted the packages alsa-utils, alsa-base and alsa-oss. Further I loaded
the modules snd, soundcore, snd-powermac and for OSS compatibility
snd-mixer-oss, snd-pcm-oss and snd-seq-oss using modconf.
I read several emails (debian-powerpc, debian-kde) about the ALSA installation
on iBooks and Powerbooks and did a lot of internet research about this topic.
Often the authors talk about different configuration files:
/etc/alsa/modutils/0.9 or /etc/alsa/modutils/1.0
I couldn't find any of these config files after the apt-get of alsa-utils,
alsa-base and alsa-oss. Do I have to create these config files by hand or
should they created automatically (alsaconf)?
In KDE Control-Center / Sound-System / Hardware I have chosen ALSA (Quality
Standard or 16bit) and get sound pushing the Key 'Sound testen' (german KDE).
But, when I insert an audio cd and start KsCD, KsCD discover the audio cd and
plays it, there is no sound at all.
Playing mp3 files works great (xmms, kaboodle)!
I read something that one have to enable a 'digital' mode in order to play
audio cd's. What does this mean? How can I switch my cdrom from analog to
