I was able to make aplay to play sound on FreeBSD installation.
need to install
alsa-lib-1.0.15-1.fc8.i386.rpm (minor library upgrade to match
alsa-utils-1.0.15-1.fc8.i386.rpm (for aplay)
and then provide default pcm configuration
# cat /compat/linux/etc/asound.conf
After that some simple wav's can be played:
$ /compat/linux/usr/bin/aplay /usr/local/share/apps/sim/sounds/message.wav
Playing WAVE '/usr/local/share/apps/sim/sounds/message.wav' : Unsigned 8 bit, Rate 22050 Hz, Mono
Unfortunately flash9 plug-in is still silent, but it not shows more any
Probably it is due to:
--- README-pcm-oss ---
The function supported by this plugin is limited. For example, you
cannot use dmix together with this plugin. Don't expect too much :)
Probably it worth to try play sound with flash9 player through this
plug-in on plain Linux.
