Getting Sound Working Linux PPC

Having installed Ubuntu Linux 12.04 to my PowerMac G5 I found the sound wouldn't work

Checked the Sound under Settings and there appeared to be no sound card recognised

Searched and searched and finally found this link on the Ubuntu forums

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1961136.html

The gist of it is to add some drivers which are loaded at startup

To get sound working again

sudo nano /etc/modules
you enter a text editor
scroll down and add the following lines:
snd_aoa_i2sbus
snd_aoa_fabric_layout
snd_aoa_codec_tas
snd_aoa_codec_onyx

then CTRL-X and "y" to save

reboot

sound works hopefully

Worked a treat for me
