That depends if you sun has a soundcard.

You can install xmms on solaris.. there is even a sun binary package at

just download and use pkgadd -d /patch_to_pkg/packagename

then /usr/local/bin/xmms to start the player in X

im using it at work with a ultra 5 with no problems...

also, please tell me what is wrong with following :

root@catty:[118] >ls
coraenv* gftp* gtk-config* wmxmms* xmms-config*
dbhome* glib-config* oraenv* xmms*
root@catty:[119] >./xmms
./xmms: Exec format error. Binary file not executable.
