RE: mp3's on SPARC LX - Debian 2.2...

Hmm...according to Joshua Uziel (I haven't looked at the code myself) the
code for the dbri audio does not have a port adjustment in the 2.2 kernel.
He said he might be able to make up a patch for the 2.2 dbri but that
basically 2.4 fixes this.

This would of course explain why cam didn't work for you.

I'm not sure if I'm ready to do a kernel upgrade on this yet.  (I have a
real tendency to screw things like that up and usually end up re-loading the
system from scratch.  Which is funny because after over ten years of PC
networking most things I don't have a problem with.)

Anyway thanks for the help!  I got it playing with audioctl and mpg123 with
the -r 8000 switch.  Now I just have to find a way to improve the sound
quality a little.

I used the mixer named cam to do that, it just needs a 25-row terminal.
Unfortunatelly it didn't seem to work as expected with 2.2.17, I'm using
2.4pre on this ultra5.
So just apt-get install cam and try your luck.
