Re: Sound in g4

With ALSA/Debian I have the issue that I have to add snd to
/etc/modules manually. /etc/init.d/alsa won't do anything
otherwise, as /proc/asound does not exist.

Not sure if the init script is from debian or alsa. This happens
on all hardware platforms. In your case, a
 modprobe snd-powermac
should load the sound driver for you. Run alsamixer to unmute it.
