Solaris SPARC question.

Postby Guest » Sun Jan 09, 2005 10:47 am

Hello Mr. Mazumdar,

I am running Solaris 10 on an Ultra 10 SPARC computer, and am
wondering is theer a difference between using your company's
product to hear sounds (such as listening to music), instead of the
native Solaris audio drivers? I am just looking to listen to music,
but would like to do so with higher quality, if possible.

Thank you,
Omar.

Hi,

OSS on Sparc will only support plugin PCI devices. Your Ultra10 has built in sound that should be sufficient for music playback but if you need additional features like equalizers and affects, you should get the SB Audigy/Audigy2 and the OSS drivers.


best regards

Hello and thank you for the definitive response. Until your reference,
I did not realize an audio card so sophisticated exists. Again thank
you for the information. -Omar.
