I have a mac mini with a soundcard Toonie..
That's what automatic ALSA detection gives me when i check dmesg.

I use both kernels 2.4.31 and 2.6.13.2 and i have the alsa driver compiled in my kernel.
I have also everything else needed that I found searching the forum compiled in the kernel.(I2C stuff etc.)
I also have alsa-utils alsa-lib and alsa-tools -- version 1.0.8
The driver in the kernel is a newer version but i am going to compile new versions of the above today though that I believe I wont have any results. :(

When I run alsa mixer I can unmute my channels but I cannot increase the volume.
It is stuck to 00.
I have sound in XMMS when i use the esd (EnlightD i think..) and with OSS which I don't have it compiled in the kernel and when i hear to sound with OSS there is a disturbing sound in the backround ..


--> I supply my .config files . Copy/Paste the URL if it doesn't work :)

It's really recommended that you don't use 2.4 kernels on PPC, lots of fixes for newer machines haven't been backported.

For the sound problem, try alsa-driver from portage instead of the built in ALSA.
