RE: which driver do I need in the kernel for sound in a sparc LX?

BZZZT!  Thank you for playing anyway!

Sorry - couldn't resist. ;-)

What you actually need in the kernel is DBRI audio.  LX and IIRC SS10 use it
instead of the AMD or Crystal hardware.  AMD will _not_ work because the LX
uses DBRI for 16-bit audio while the IPX uses AMD for 8-bit audio.

Check out the notes about SPARC audio at the Linux Documentation project

Hope that clears things up.

  Use "amd7320.o" (or something like that) if I'm not wrong (Sparc LX
has like
  Sparc Classic). I can play ".au" files but don't try with other
formats (WAV,
  MOD or MP3) yet.
