Your tip to activate snd-aoa* in some way worked to get audio on my 
powerbook g4.

BUT: Sound does not work, when i comment out (in /etc/modules) 
snd-powermac. I looked closer into dmesg and debug (in /var/log/) and i 
found something interesting.

dmesg -l debug:

	[   20.130718] snd-aoa-codec-tas: found 'deq' node

dmesg -l err:

	[   20.133362] i2c i2c-6: Failed to register i2c client aoa_codec_tas 
at 0x35 (-16)

Would that mean, i should comment out snd-aoa-codec-tas? Only that 
module or also the other snd-aoa* ?

Thanks in advance for your patience!

PS. I still have the problem audacious and gnome-mplayer (*) do not play 
audio cd's (but vlc does!).

*) I remember you advised some time ago, to use another skin to mplayer 
than gnome-mplayer. Which one was it?
