This works 101% perfectly under WINE (CVS HEAD, no
special patches), running as a user, kernel 2.4.31,
wine-oss sound driver on top of ALSA 1.0.5a's OSS

Frame rate isn't brilliant (750MHz machine) but audio
is spotless.

My sound hardware is:
0 [Live           ]: EMU10K1 - Sound Blaster Live!
                      Sound Blaster Live! (rev.7) at 0xd800, irq 12

FYI my audio experience with this setup has been flawless
with wine for as long as I can remember, at least devoid
of the stutters and noise that many people seem to

Wow, I just tried the demo with wine's 'native' ALSA driver
and the audio does break up a lot...
