Right now 14.04 is fine for PPC . . . there is a "Fixing sound in 14.04"
thread on the Apple Hardware sub-forum . . . some are "easier" to do than
others . . . .  I have some posts on that thread, and once I got around to
trying to fix it, mine was pretty easy . . . .  There are instructions,
perhaps on the PowerPCFAQ, as well . . . you have to find out which "device
ID" alsamixer is using???

If you can't find the thread, let me know . . . "rsavage" is the gentleman
who posted the fixes for sound there.
