    I think the powerpc item was always slightly wrong. I suggest (sorry,
    don't have the source to hand):

    -the snd-powermac module is no longer loaded by default as it will lock up some systems; you will need to add it to /etc/modules manually
    +the snd-powermac module is no longer loaded by default on all systems as it will lock up some models; you may need to add it to /etc/modules manually

    Note that the hw-detect changelog entry was:

    * discover-mac-io.sh: snd-powermac can lock up G5 iMac and Power Mac.

    .... and the code reads:

    elif [ "$name" = awacs ]; then
    # probably best to go for ALSA
    register-module snd-powermac
    elif [ "$name" = davbus ] || [ "$name" = i2s-a ]; then
    for child in "$dir"/*; do
    if [ -f "$child/name" ]; then
    childname="$(cat "$child/name" 2>/dev/null || true)"
    if [ "$childname" = sound ]; then
    # Loading snd-powermac locks up G5 systems
    if [ "$name" != i2s-a ]; then
    register-module snd-powermac
    fi
    fi
    fi
    done

  3. Reviewed errata text

    Here's the current status of the errata file on my system, after
    applying Otavio's diff and corrections by debian-l10n-english.
