You can try (as root):

| rmmod snd_aoa_soundbus
| modprobe snd-powermac
`----

Sound seems not working, still.
In Gnome i play a .wav file with VLC, cant hear nothing.
Also gnome volume control wont work
it says: couldnt find GStreamer volume control complements (plugins?) or devices
[im translatimg from spanish]

See if it works and reportback. If that doesn't work, then (also as root):

,----
| echo snd-powermac >> /etc/modules
| shutdown -r now
`----

(This will reboot your notebook)

  
i did,
now it works.
both volume control and play a .wav file with VLC player in Gnome

$

this last report seems exactly the same as before.
If one of the above works, then it will be one point more for the
installer not to install the snd_aoa* drivers by default.

thanks.
i dont know if i will understand if you tell me
the meaning of the commands we have used...
or at least the aim of them.
