Ho hum,
Looking into simple sound now, I'm trying to get 
working with my SoundBlaster 16.  cat *.au > /dev/audio works fine.

I'm quite the novice at sound, so hopefully I'm just overlooking
something here.


I had to disable lpt0 and remove the "conflicts" from the
config file line in order to get simple .au files playable
through /dev/audio.

The relevant lines of dmesg are:

sb0 at 0x220 irq 7 drq 1 on isa
sb0: <SoundBlaster Pro 4.13>
sbxvi0 at 0x0 drq 5 on isa
sbxvi0: <SoundBlaster 16 4.13>
sbmidi0 not found at 0x330
opl0 at 0x388 on isa
opl0: <Yamaha OPL-3 FM>

But invoking the server gives:

leni# au 
Sep 12 15:54:22 leni /kernel: PCM device 1 not installed.
Sep 12 15:54:22 leni /kernel: PCM device 1 not installed.
