I am using Cynthiune on Linux (Ubuntu 10.04) w/o major problems so far.
Even the new ALSW backend worked w/o any hassle :-) Thanks.
The only issue I have so far is with the song inspector. It comes
completely w/o window decorations. I observed this on xfce and GNOME,
while on WindowMaker the title bar was there. After digging for a while,
I found that the gorm bundle does not set the NSTitledWindowMask flag
for the panel. I don't know why, though. I also don't know about the nib
bundle. Is there any way to fix that w/o having to recreate the gorm bundle?
The window should be fine.

I tried the Alsa backend on debian/linux/ppc on my iBook and I just get
garbage-sounding output when I play files. (mpg123 works...). I didn't
try OSS because I have a minimal install and don't have the OSS
compatibilty layer...
On my x86 though it works.
IIRC, PowerPC is big endian, and there may be more a problem in the MP3 decoder
than with the output plugin? But I'm just guessing. I can probably try on the 
or maybe even later today, on my OpenBSD macppc notebook.

Ok, do some tests.. although this is linux here. PPC is big endian on
macs. I also have a sparc machine, but it is slow and has no sound output.
Big or Little endian is Processor dependent, so its for any OS running there 
the same.
yes/no: some processors can be big endian depending on the architecture... some can even switch depending on the OS (there were certain MIPS machines capable of that).

In this case I was just referring to the fact that I was using ALSA, which you don't have on OpenBSD :)

My sparcstation 5 also doesn't have sound. But I just got a sparcbook 3GX from
ebay \o/ Unfortunately, without HDD, nor do I have a 26Pin AUI Adapter yet, to 
able to connect it to the network to let it boot from the network.
So it will take some time before I can do tests on that machine.

For the time being, the macppc has to suffice ;)
yes, indeed :) I envy your sparcbook!

I have a PPC machine, a 9600, which was a very nice machine back then. I don't use it since ages, it used to run NetBSD, but I wlays had trouble with it, with the need to patch kernels to get its dual-scsi setup working with certain disks, etc... and I don't know if the sound chip was supported. Maybe time for a revamp? Or pass it to OpenBSD ? :)
