No problem... I just woke up so my tolerence level is a bit low. :)

Well, I think anyone who wants to work is welcome.  Also, I just
remembered that I think RedHat's audio stuff is a bit better off on Sparc
then Debian.  Debian only just released the Sparc version less then a year
ago, while RedHat's Sparc has been around a while.  They have a few extra
things hammered out.  Audio just dosn't seem to be a high priority.  It
would be nice to have nice streamlined audio, it is a bit discouraging
that TIK is the only thing that works really well. :)

True, it shouldn't.  I've also had some interesting issues.  Sometimes
some wav files play fine from a Windows machine, other wav files just give
me noise.  There could still actually be some driver issues.

That generally gets quick attention. :)

Heh, nope, your all set. :)  I'm here with a measly little SS5-85. :)
