What are the failure symptoms and what PCI cards have you tried?  

A U60's onboard sound does work with Linux; and the modules provided
with the Sparc64 2.4 kernel suggest that two types of PCI soundcards
should work: ones based on a particular Trident chipset and ones based
on a chipset used in Creative Soundblaster PCI and possibly Ensoniq
Audio PCI cards.

For onboard sound have you done

   modprobe cs4231

or added cs4231 to /etc/modules ?  Have you set the PARAMS variable

   PARAMS="play.port=line_out"

in /etc/default/audioctl ?


In any Debian install a user account has to be a member of the "audio"
group for the mixer or playback to work for that user.


The mixer's volume level may default to 0.
