Re: Kernel 2.6.14-2 hangs on iMac G5 8,2 (ata1 timeout)
Does it happen if you disable the sound driver ? (prevent it from
loading or don't compile it at all if you are building your own
It seems to be working now. I could not convice the kernel image not to build with the sound modules so I simply erased the whole sound subtree from the /lib/modules and it's been working for thirty minutes now with the normal workload. Thanks!
Just out of curiosity, what was happening? The sound is not supported on my iMac and the module was not being loaded. How can help the fact that I removed the sound modules?

Then apply those 2 patches in that order:
That's it. Now enable:
If you are using modules, you may have to manually load the whole bunch,
especially the i2c SMU one which isn't requested (yet).
