: I'm in need of xbiff sounds!

: Since moving my local machine over to Solaris 2.3, I can no longer run
: xbiff++ remotely with display set to my Solaris2.3 machine.  I assume
: this is because the audio device is handled differently on Solaris2.x
: and xbiff++ just doesn't understand this.

: The most current version of xbiff++ I've found is 1.10.  Anything
: newer?  Is there another program that will satisfy my desire to bother
: my office mates with sounds?

: I haven't tried compiling xbiff++ on solaris2.x yet, but it doesn't
: look like the support is in the code anyway.

: Here's the symptoms...  I run remotely on the 4.1 machine, my mailbox
: appears on the Solaris2.3 machine and all is well till the call for a
: sound is to be played when mail arrives.  The message that prints
: forever is

:       [...]
:       draining audio device: Inappropriate ioctl for device
:       draining audio device: Inappropriate ioctl for device
:       [...]

I have full installation of Solaris2.3
and I have this program:

/usr/openwin/bin/xbiff

xbiff++ is an extension to xbiff, which does audio sound notifications
based on regular expression matches in the mail headers (to, from,
subject, etc.)  /usr/openwin/bin/xbiff is not xbiff++.

I patched up xbiff++ for Solaris 2.3 and even added a new function
which allows the middle button to be used to run a shell command.  (I
use it to run "xterm -e elm").  You can grab the tar file
xbiff++.sol23.tar through the web in:

  <http://www.dna.lth.se/local>

Let me know if it works out.  (I just loaded it there)...

(No promises...)
