The mentioned alsa device is provided by libao2. Since version 0.8.7
there is no alsa09 device present. We have to use alsa vor the alsa
0.9/1 API now. If you have libao (0.8.8-3) installed, the entry in
/etc/libao.conf should be correct. If you have a ~/.libao you might
delete it or do a "echo default_driver=alsa" > ~/.libao.

The alsaconf script doesn't break sound. It is just unusable for ppc
cards right now. You can try /etc/init.d/udev restart && udevtrigger
instead. If you want to use OSS you have to run dpkg-reconfigure
linux-sound-base and choose oss. The driver should be loaded via

If you have udev running and a kernel >= 2.6.18-rc? then udev should
load your snd_aoa flavour at G4 PB's. Note: do not mention any snd-*
module in /etc/modules and no user-snd-blacklists in
/etc/modprobe.d/. linux-sound-base has to be configured for alsa.
