Should it be something like:
# $1 <card ID>
        CARDOPT="-c $1"

        # Silly dance to activate internal speakers by default on PowerMac
        # Tumbler
        if [ "`cat /proc/asound/card$1/id 2>/dev/null`" = "Tumbler" ]; then
                switch_control "Auto Mute" off
                switch_control "PC Speaker" off
                switch_control "Auto Mute" on

I can't test it, I am runing a PowerBook with a "Live". Please let me know
wheter it works. It'll be included in the next upload then.

Thanks for reporting
