A few people have asked me about this, so i thought i would post it here:
I have sound working on the new iBook, mostly from looking at the Darwin

The basic steps were:
- powering up the sound system and one of the amps by writing to some
- setting up the digital equalizer using I2C
- using the dmasound_pmac module for actual sound output

Full details here:


This is all really, really hacked together. It should all probably be put
together in one or two nice neat kernel modules at some stage.
