On a freshly installed lubuntu quantal ppc I have no alsamixer in terminal. I have reinstalled alsa-utils package and ran the command "sudo rm /etc/modrpobe.d/blacklist.local.conf" which did the trick in 12.04. I still have no sound or audio icon on taskbar, but alsamixer showed up in terminal for a while with a message; "this sound device does not have any controls". Today after a reboot, alsamixer no longer shows in terminal and is back to; "cannot open mixer: No such file or directory" (yes, I typed in "alsamixer").

I posted this in the Ubuntu+1 section, but no replies. I suspect it is more general iBook G4 issue, perhaps with some quantal qirks, but I don`t understand what is listed in the ppc faq page.

Any idea on how to go about it?
