Install was trivial, identical to 0.3.3e in the awe-drv package, just an
install.sh script to call and then rebuild the kernel (of course every
step is explained).
I removed the Debian packages and I got and installed by hand everything I
found in the binaries directory at Takashi Iwai's web/ftp site. Really
nice, everything seems to work _very_ fine (expect that I'm not able to
test the Netscape plugin yet... not that I'm suffering about it anyway).
NOW (while I pop/send mail, but also tried a fly with ACM!... and was able
to land safe of course) drvmidi is playing without any delay some of those
sf2demo files... sending by itself the additional soundfont banks to bank1
once I've "told" it to. We must ask Takashi Iwai to put his photo in his
BTW, I gave a look at old messages... have you and Britton selected a
cheap midi keyboard then? As you know, me too I think I'll have to get one
