Do someone of you know, whether it is possible to use the digital output on my PowerMac Dual G5 @ 2.7GHz on Gentoo?
If yes, is there a Dokumentation out to make the digital output work on Gentoo?

thnx

no, it is currently not possible to use the digital audio output from Apple G5 systems. As far as I know most parts of the driver would have to be rewritten. You are wellcomed to do so :wink:

The driver exists as open source in darwin if I recall correctly. Basicly someone needs to rewrite the driver for linux.

Regarding sound quality: I do nothing special: loading the driver and unmute the channels using alsa-mixer. :wink:
