As said on <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=381658>,
alsaconf was for 2.4, and I had problems with it (reported in this
cited bug). Then, what's the status of alsaconf now?

A new snd-aoa driver was mentioned in bug 381658, but I couldn't find
a NEWS file in /usr/share/doc/linux-image-2.6.18-3-powerpc, so I don't
know what's new and what changes are needed.
