So, for a distribution kernel, I guess that, once nobody complains
about the problems, we can just standardize on snd-powermac (and
have people have a working setup) and document the potential
(perhaps nonexistent?) problem in the release notes for the arch.
      
No, please not! At least on my powerbook5,8 snd-aoa works way better
than snd-powerpc. And AFAIK this is true for all newer Powerbooks. It
may be that snd-powermac is the only option for some of the older Apple
powerpc based hardware. But please only enable it for devices that are
not supported by snd-aoa. 
    

Completely agree with that. snd-aoa was made for newer Macs AFAIK, and
it works very well here. The one that cause problem here is a
powermac3,3 

despite the thread name, the original sound problem was in a
PowerBook3,3
as Risto Suominen pointed out in a previous post.

(just to clearify)


which is an old model, and which is not supported by snd-aoa
according to http://johannes.sipsolutions.net/Projects/snd-aoa

I am CC'ing Johannes, he may help us solve that long standing problem.

Regards,
Benjamin
