Re: PowerMac G4 (Digital Audio) sound
I tried today's (4/13/11) Daily Build #5, that uses the installer build from Sid
on my 533MHz PowerMac G4 (Digital Audio) and guess what? The sound worked. I
was able to adjust the volume and set a sound theme. The correct device for
this machine, PowerMac Tumbler (Alsa mixer), had been installed. I checked
under /etc/modprobe.d and no files were blacklisted except snd-aoa in
Some serious bugs, though. First of all, during the boot process the machine
hung at login. I had to unplug and replug my USB keyboard to get it going
again. Secondly, the CD-ROM drive is not recognized ("eject" in terminal gives
me "unable to open /dev/hdc") so I can't tell if it will play a music CD or not.
Pushing the manual eject button on the machine gives me about 1 second before
the tray shuts again.
Some progress, though.
