I had tried that, David, and only got the offer of 'xmms',
Leary:/home/john# apt-get install alsa-xmms
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Note, selecting xmms instead of alsa-xmms
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 40 not upgraded.
Need to get 2013kB of archives.
After unpacking 6255kB of additional disk space will be used.
Get:1 http://ftp.uk.debian.org testing/main xmms 1.2.10-1 [2013kB]
25% [1 xmms 507879/2013kB 25%]30.3kB/s 49s
29% [1 xmms 601999/2013kB 29%]29.6kB/s 47s
----I aborted at this stage----
A package search on Debian.org in both Sarge and Testing failed
to show 'alsa-xmms'. Very puzzling to me.
Thanks for the response. John.
