Really wish you to play MP3 with a pc-speaker?!

With earlier releases you was able to play mp3 correctly on the speaker,
and no with 10r0? VERY strange. Please, try to remove the string "no387"
in your loadlin.cfg

In alternative (if you really wish to help me), please recover the mulinuz
coming with earlier release and replace it in your c:\linux\startup\boot
directory, then try again.
Please, type "uname -a" and check the compilation date
of your kernel.

The kernel is new in 10.* : please check. Maybe, something is changed,
and I can recovery.

As far the device is concerned, mp3 is music like other.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
