Sound on Mac mini

I've submited this question a few days ago, but now have new details about it.
I'm using Debian 3.1 PPC on a Mac mini.

When starting KDE allways receive the following message :
"Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or directory)"

Running alsaconf, it detects my card - snd powermac - and says sound driver is configured, but ends with the message
" /usr/sbin/alsactl: save_state:1194: No soundcards found...

Running lsmod, I get
Module Size Used by
snd_powermac 44304 0
snd_pcm_oss 68136 0
snd_mixer_oss 23264 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 119800 2 snd_powermac,snd_pcm_oss
snd_page_alloc 13480 1 snd_pcm
snd_timer 29348 1 snd_pcm
snd 67800 5 snd_powermac,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer
soundcore 11812 1 snd

And I cannot get sound to work.
Can someone help ?
