I can't remember what sound hardware is in the SS2 -- I have a SS5 that is connected to my stero, acting as an mp3 player. My box has the cs4231 hardware (and module), which is the same as the Ultra 1. However, the SS10 does not really have sound hardware (it uses the ISDN chipset to handle it, and still needs an external DAC or something.) Again, you should verify what sound hardware you actually have. OK, I did some digging for you. Go here (it doesn't look good...): http://www.dementia.org/~shadow/sparcaudio.html That said, mp3blaster finally works on Sparc, and works quite well on my SS5 (which is grossly underpowered by PC standards -- BogoMips : 109.77, with 64MB of RAM). Even using smbmounted filesystems for the mp3 files, it sill only uses ~40% of the CPU, and never skips. (XMMS failed miserably -- the box just can't keep up with the requirements for X windows, even with local files.) I'm going to try and set up JWZ's "gronk" (apache based frontend to play mp3 files) eventually, since it would be nice to not have to be tied to a console session, but I like mp3blaster a lot. Later, Rob.
