Dear all,

the snd-powermac module was freezing G5s on fresh installs long time ago, and
was disabled for this reason. But in a test I made one year ago, it was not the
case anymore. There is probably no reason to keep it blacklisted by default,
although it may be useful to double-check its innocuity before.

Have a nice day,
