    Getting Sound to work--- help!

    Okay, following directions I found on the internet, I ran "modprobe dmasound_pmac" and now I can hear my iBook beep back at me when I press the backspace key at the terminal prompt. Now, is there a way to hear my iBook play an audio CD or an MP3 file? The volume control in Gnome still wont let me up the volume. I'm running an oldschool Tangerine iBook. I try to run the gnome volume config and it is saying the soundcard could not be found.

    Any help/info?

    vi /etc/modprobe.conf

    add the following content:
    # ALSA portion
    alias char-major-116* snd
    alias snd-card-0 snd_powermac

    # OSS/Free portion
    alias char-major-14* soundcore
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

    # card #1
    alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
    alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
    alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
    alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
    alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

    install snd-card-0 /sbin/modprobe ~@~Signore-install snd-card-0 && { /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }
    remove snd-card-0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }; /sbin/modprobe -r ~@~Signore-remove
    install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe ~@~Signore-install sound-slot-0 && { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 22>&1 || :; }
    remove sound-slot-0 { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >>/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }; /sbin/modprobe -r ~@~Signore-remove

    Thanks very much Craks for your help. I'm going to look into that when I have a chance but first I'm going to try out the Fedora Core 4 test 1 and see if maybe things are cleaned up in that distro or maybe worse! Hope not!

    Long live Linux!
