Description Michael Schwendt 2000-06-08 13:47:55 EDT
pluggerrc: It is NOT recommended to use sidplay's option -a by default
because it activates a less powerful emulation mode and can lead to damaged
playback of sidtunes that require a better emulation mode. That's why -a is
an _option_ and not the default. Option -a2 is recommended, though.
Comment 1 Tim Powers 2000-06-08 13:59:04 EDT
"sidplay -a" isn't in the default pluggerrc file, are you sure you are using the
one from our package in 6.2?

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2000-06-08 15:50:57 EDT
The powertools package is okay. I'm using plugger-3.2-2.src.rpm (not the updated
ones), and somehow the plugger-3.2-redhat.patch has not been applied, even
though it is included in the source rpm. In other words, the installed pluggerrc
is the original one. Strange, I have never before used another version of
plugger. I'm off investigating...
