Just for the info, in case it helps diagnose something.
When I first installed Etch my gnome volume icon was on mute and could
not be changed. I then added snd-powermac to my modules and the icon
worked (which I assume is what you are refering to as the master
volume control in alsa). With this setup I thought sound was working,
but when I ran Amarok it said that xine could not find a sound driver.
That's when I posted to the list and it was recommended that I run
alsaconf, which seemed to load a driver for powermac sound. Anyways,
sound seems to be working now, I can run Amarok and listen to music so
I'm happy. Thanks for the help.
