Thanks a lot, you're not trolling, but highly welcome. I was just about to 
write some wrappers around audioctl and sox which works quite well
on 2.4.27-sparc64 (even artsd works, if set to threaded oss and started 
together with 'audioctl -w play.pause=0' ) - maybe this has become obsolete
with the patches.  I'd love it because the Sun-Audio device has a very 
powerful and warm output.  I am a musician / VJ - and I intend to use the
Blade for that purpose - well knowing  this won't be too easy.

Btw. 'harmony' - I have a A9000 715/100,  which also used to have a good
sound under 2.4 and broke with 2.6 native alsa - I'll have a look for 
corresponding patches.
