Maybe, maybe not. It's not what I asked for. Read the output of "grep
machine /proc/cpuinfo". There you'll find something like "PowerBook7,2"
(the numbers are the important ones).

I'm asking because on some models the sound is not yet supported. But
there's a driver in development (snd-aoa, [1]).

I'm sure there is. You have always the source code at hand and can
modify it to make it better.

Unfortunately, I don't have much expierience with professional audio on
any platform. Sound output works on my G5 and one of my PowerBooks while
another one doesn't have its sound chip supported yet (but will with
snd-aoa). Digital output is said not to work for now, but it's planned
to be included in snd-aoa once they figure it out.

Oh, and please learn how to quote. First and last warning from me.
