There is a strange bug with ogg123 from audio/vorbis-tools on NetBSD/sparc64
2.0.2. The problem is that I hear strange noises while ogg123 is playing.
I don't have the problem when using sox to convert from ogg to au format
and then using audioplay. Logically, I don't have the problem when playing
a native au file directly with audioplay. However, and this is more
worrying, ogg123 -d au -f test.ogg made the host crash after a few
seconds. The kernel still responded to icmp echo queries, so the kernel
looked like still alive, but TCP connections were all freezed, and no reply
at all could be seen when initiating new connections. I can't tell about
the console, as this host is headless, and I don't have serial access yet.


ogg123 test.ogg on an Ultra1 host with NetBSD/sparc64 2.0.2, and a CS4231A
sound chip, with audio/libao-sun plugin.
