I'm using testing, together with the linuxppc_2_4_devel Bitkeeper tree.
xmms plays MP3s and Oggs fine, but the cd reader plugin just produces
noise. It sounds to me like an endianness problem.

The other problem I have is that the MP3 and Ogg output is quite hissy compared to my desktop machine. I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the iBook2 hardware, or a problem in the driver.
