Here is the question:

> Hi Sunners,
> I've installed Solaris 2.6x86 on a pentium back at home. I've compiled
> WorkMan 1.3a just fine and it does work when I connect my speakers to
> the cdrom output.
> Now, What I would like is to use my SoundBlaster card's output instead
> of the cdrom to play cd music... I know that on a sparc4/5, they was an
> option (-DECODEC i think) to activate the speaker of the sparc.
> How can I achieve this using this pc ? (Yes, I've got a cable internally
> between my cdrom and my soundblaster card.)

The solution is really simple...

Thank's to :

"Rodney C. Marable" <>
Aleksandar Milivojevic <>

both suggested:

> Run audiocontrol, select Record, and choose your internal CD-ROM player.
> Then start workman. You will always need to have audiocontrol running at
> the same time as workman if you want your SoundBlaster to play music.
