Re: [PATCH] pmac: sound support for latest laptops


I've got Ben's sound patch working under 2.6.12-rc2 on a post-Feb '05 12" Powerbook. I detail the process for newbies like me who need hand-holding here: Sound Working on Post-February 2005 12" G4 Powerbook

One problem: The Powerbook's internal speaker is barely audible when everything is cranked up to the max. I think I may have skipped the kernel module called PC Speaker. Was that a mistake? The sound works great when I use headphones or plug in external speakers to the headphone jack.

And as an aside, does that therm_adt7467 module work properly on the new Powerbooks? Since I've started using this 2.6.12-rc2 kernel the fan seems to run non-stop. I don't want the Powerbook to overheat, but I don't want the fan to run unnecessarily either. Maybe I forgot to enable cpufreq. Would that make a difference? Perhaps my Powerbook is always running at 1.5GHz now. Thanks for any ideas.
