[MPlayer-users] sound problems on linuxppc

hi there!

the sound is broken on linuxppc: i can only hear some beeeeep all the 
time, but no speech/music/whatever. there is some sound-dump wave file 
in the source directory of mplayer, which, when copied to /dev/sound/dsp 
makes exactly the same noise (as far as i can tell).

does anybody have any ideas on how to fix? i tried the oss sound driver 
(and every other driver too). the sdl-module makes the same sound, the 
others remain silent (some codec bug?). i was trying to play the lord 
ovfthe rings (i assume it was divx4). i'll try some mpeg file soon 

my sound hardware is definitely working correctly, since xmms has no 
problems with playing MP3s. and the system beep 0x07 does also work :)

best regards,
