    Hi Ron,

    Is there any chance you could put together a deb or a source package of the Ogg Tremor pack?

    You mentioned this a while ago in a couple of other threads, but other priorities kept getting in the way.

    I know you’re working hard on various other things, but I have been unable to play the thousands of Oggs in my collection for about half a year now and I’d really appreciate having this option.

    I frequently find myself wanting to listen to particular albums, only to discover that they are in Ogg format as the SoundBridge starts to have buffering problems after a second or two.

    Thanks
    Emile

    Oops 😳 forgot to specify that.

    It’s for the ARM platform as I’m running Firefly on a Slug

    Thanks

    Yeah that ogg tremor patch is a bugger. I think you better integrate it into firefly with a -oggdec-tremor-patch option.
    Took me some time to manually patch and compile and have since then ensured it stays in place.

    You can’t see it from there, but I’m crying a little. 🙂

    That’s from the stress from working so hard on all those Firefly improvements, nothing to do with me bumping threads 😀

    Don’t worry, in this day and age it’s OK for men to cry!

    Hey Ron,

    Is there any news on this?

    It appears that you are the only one who can provide this.

    I would really like to listen to my Oggs via my SoundBridge, something I haven’t been able to do for 8 months now.

    Cheers
    Emile

    Hi Ron,

    I’m sure you’re very busy with lots of other, and no doubt far more important things, but I’d really, really appreciate it if you could spare a moment and help me (and surely others too) with an Ogg Tremor package for the NSLU2 running Debian Etch so that I at long last can listen again to a sizeable chunk of my music collection.

    Thanks
    Emile

    Is there perhaps anyone else who could help me getting this particular Tremor version?

    I would REALLY like to play my Ogg files on my Soundbridge after 3/4 of a year.

    Am I the only one who tries to do this?

    Thanks
    Emile

    No, you’re not the only one. Good luck and please report any problems with the new patch in the other thread.

    Thank you VERY much for your response!

    Sadly, as luck would have it, I managed to delete the bulk of my /var folder this weekend by being too trigger happy with rm -R and thus rendering my slug somewhat useless.

    So now I’ve got a way to install Ogg Tremor but no working slug 😕 and I don’t have the time at the moment to reinstall Debian from scratch.

    I’ve tried running qemu with ARM emulation with the intention of installing Etch on this virtual slug and then copy the missing /var folders and files across in an attempt to avoid reinstalling the whole thing from scratch but so far I’ve not managed to complete the Debian installation on this qemu slug.

    Does anyone have a good suggestion as to how I might be able to recover my ailing slug?

    Cheers
