All Mac sound chips? Because sound here, on a Titanium IV, with 2.6.8,
stock debian powerpc kernel, works like a charm: I didn't even do a
complicated ALSA setup: Just added non-root to the cdrom, audio groups,
and that was it ...

Even on my old 2.4.25 kernel, same machine, ALSA was doing a fairly
nice job. The fact I had problems at the beginning when starting using
ALSA prolly was due to the person in front of the machine here ... :)

BTW: I'm writing this mail while listening to a CD, via Xine, on the
Powerbook ...

No house buying here, but broke anyway .. :)

I'm rather sure I'd give my Titanium to eBay without the possibility
to run Linux on it ... Sorry, Steve Jobs ... :)

So thanks for all the Linux software, to all those making it available
for this machine here ...
