Hi Vincent,

I agree, but if I understand correctly, the choice was between sound not
working out of the box on some computers, or Debian crashing out of the
box on some others... Furthermore, although the information is well
hidden, it is present in the erratas:

If there a chance that snd-powermac does not crash iMacs G5 anymore, I
volunteer to make tests. Does anybody know if the code of snd-powermac
evolved since 2006?

Have a nice day,
