Right, one never knows in PPC; but I have two flavors of Xenial running, in
PM & also iBook, and there sound worked "straight outta Compton" . . . (the
city) . . . also in Precise, but not in 14.04, whatever that was called.
Seemed like in 14 other PPC users had to do more effort than I did, I think
I just had to blacklist some modules, others needed a script or something.
