yes, i'm sorry, i didn't even think to try that, but it does work now.
i can play a file and i can load and and play one of the sndlib
examples. the audio settings dialog shows my soundcard too. pretty

i'm not sure what the waveform display should be doing, though. both
in jucedemo and grace it scrolls random-looking squarewavish bursts
regardless of what is (or isn't) playing through the player. my
notebook is especially weak on graphics power, though, and anything
that redraws a lot really bogs it down. i'll try the whole process on
another faster linux machine in the house tomorrow.
