Dear Sun-Managers,

and again this resource was a great help


>Does anybody have a working /dev/audio on a SparcStaion 5 with SunOS 4.1.3?


There is a patch needed to get audio working on a Sparc5 running
SunOS 4.1.3.

It is on the Solaris 1.1.1 Rev B. cd.
Bring the system up as normal.
Load the cd into the drive. (Do not mount it)
issue the following command:
extract_patch -dsr0 -pms2
The d option is for the cd device (sr0)
The p option is for the patch number (ms2)

If the cdrom is not attached to the Sparc5 then load the cd into the drive
on the remote machine and mount to /cdrom
Then on the Sparc5 simply type
When prompted specify the patch number (ms2)
the media (cdrom)
and the fact that it is remote and what the remote path is (remote_host:/cdrom)

In either case resspond to prompts and have the patch rebuild a new kernel.
Then follow instructions at end of script to install new kernel and reboot.

( Thank you very much Jerry )
