OK, that makes sense.

Great. Thanks. Since I wrote this email earlier this morning I managed to get the new kernel booted and sound it working. MythTV works OK and controls sound levels as long as I set the sound device to PCM inside of Myth. The one problem I'm having right now is that when I try to shut the machine down it hangs on 'Unloading Alsa modules". Only way out so far is the power switch. I'm scanning around for info on this sort of problem but haven't found anyone else reporting it as of yet. Not a good problem but the machine is at least usable. cheers, Mark -- gentoo-ppc-user@l.g.o mailing list
