Hello,

1 - Have you loaded the kernel module of your sound card ?
	-> Make a lsmod and if you don't see snd_powermac, load it:
	modprobe snd_powermac

2 - If you had loaded in user mode, maybe it is a problem of
permissions. You must to add your account in audio group :
	adduser <you> audio

	and make this permissions :
		chmod 666 /dev/dsp
		chmod 666 /dev/mixer

3 - Try to use alsamixer in command line and verify if Master isn't
mutted ( Press M to change).
