Subject: RFA: gmod -- Module player for Ultrasound and SB AWE soundcards

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-04-08
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the gmod package.
The package description is:
 Gmod plays MOD/669/MTM/S3M/ULT/XM modules on machines that have an
 Gravis Ultrasound family sound card or a Soundblaster AWE.

THe simple problem is, that I no longer have a AWE / GUS soundcard,
so I have no way to test if my compiles are really functional.

Do you still have time and interest for gmod? We Need to make an upload
for Debians gcc-4.0 transition (gmod compiles fine), but like the
previous uploads, I have no way of knowing if the package actually works :(

Cheers,
Riku

I've (very) recently switched computers but I still have the old one with
the AWE card installed, so I can test it to make sure it's working correctly.
The last time I checked it was playing way too fast (due to changes in the
HZ variable in kernel).

I'll prepare a patch against the current sources and send it ASAP.

(Sorry for the delay in the reply, I'm suffering from a spam filtering
malfunction in the company mail server and the spam infestation is making
me wade slowly through incoming email. In the next few days you'll probably
get faster response from cmatsuoka@gmail.com.)


Best regards,
Claudio

I also found an user with GUS ACE, reporting same problem, so looks like we 
cat get this software resurrected!

Did you send this already? apparently my spam-setup sucks as well :'(
procmail has been segfaulting (!!) on some mails (due to broken procmail rule,
but still!), and they got jammed in postfix deferred que.. .

Riku

Well I kinda agree, but there is still some AWE/GUS users who could
take advantage of their hardware. However, reportedly gmod does not
play correctly on current kernels, so removing it from testing would
make sense. 

Claudio, do have some time an motivation to resurrect gmod? Etch 
release is coming soon ;)

I just reassembled my old K6 box with the AWE card and I'll test gmod.
It was kind of interesting seeing the fsck complaining about 600 days
since the last check.

Will test and report back soon.

Best regards,
Claudio

Done, the attached patch fixes it (in the process I noticed that xmp
has the same problem, so I'm fixing it the same way). Basically it
asks the system for the HZ value -- it was previously hardcoded to
100. Tested with AWE only, but should work with GUS as well.

Best regards,
Claudio
