I've just installed F8 on my old laptop (G4 Ti.) So far so good with the exception of the alsa module for built in sound, called snd-powermac. After some hefty research today, i've discovered there been a few challenges with this module, and i'm asking if there's some sort of resolution. I have everything installed correctly according to several setup guides i found, but i still get 5 secs or so of sound, then everything dies. In addition, when i open Jack, with alsa as the sounddevice, it stops almost immediately with a 'module not found' error message, and a 'jack can't find anything compatible for format' error message.
Some assistance with this would be appreciated. I'm a full time composer, and have a sizable standing rig in the studio, but for writing on the move, the laptop would be ideal.
I got rid of osx entirely from the system, so i'm single boot into only F8.
p.s. Good distro. Everything else installed without a hitch, and it runs well on the old laptop. My compliments to the devs who've ported F8 to PPC. It brings new life to older kit.
