Whether or not this is a hw-detect thingie, I do not know... I don't
know enough about the internals of the Kernel, or how things are updated
to fully know one way or the other... I just think it is related, since
I (and many others) have had similar issues with PPC. It is a 'hunch'
or a guess....
So it looks like you are missing some important modules (from what I
understand of PPC).
In fact your iMac may even need to use snd-powermac rather than aoa
(since yours is 01)...
You might first try
sudo modprobe snd-powermac
(there might be another module you need for the soundbus... I just can't
remember off the top of my head right now... sorry)
sudo rmmod snd-aoa-i2sbus
sudo rmmod snd-aoa-soundbus
rmmod removes kernel modules from the running system... it doesn't make
a permanent change.
If snd-powermac works (i.e. you can open alsamixer) then you can make
that one permanent. If not, then, you may need to try modprobing the
ones I listed in the other e-mail.
However... yours will probably need a different codec. In my e-mail I
used snd-aoa-codec-tas but you may need snd-aoa-codec-onyx or
I don't know enough about this stuff to tell you for certain which one
will work. The information about this stuff was quite hard to find...
and I didn't memorize which models needed which codecs... I just
remember the different codec names :)
The great thing about GNU/Linux is that there is always a way to fix the
