Bug Description

Subject says it all. For the records:

<Kamion> pitti: deliberate this time
<Kamion> pitti: snd-powermac crashes some G5s apparently
<Kamion> pitti: I don't think I'm going to revert this onee
<Kamion> unless I can find some better way to detect the machines that it crashes
<pitti> oh, too bad; that's something for the release notes then?
<Kamion> probably, yeah
<Kamion> 2.6.18 will fix it properly
<Kamion> (AIUI)

Anyone know how to fix this?
I can't figure out how to install it after the fact. Yes, I'm new.

Just add 'snd-powermac' to /etc/modules. You can use the following 'fire-and-forget' shell rune:

echo snd-powermac | sudo tail -a /etc/modules

Looking at Kamion's comments that '2.6.18 will fix it properly', what is the status. This is still a problem on gutsy.
