Well, not directly affecting the NAS support issue, but actually ecasound
does run on Solaris. The magic link here is 4Front technologies (
http://www.opensound.com ), which provides OSS compatible soundcard
drivers for at least Solaris, FreeBSD, AIX, UnixWare, VxWorks, etc ... see
the whole list at:
... so at least in theory, ecasound should work on all these platforms!
And yup, the drivers cost money, but hey, Solaris et al ain't that cheap
either. ;) And 4Front is a good company to support. Even though the focus
of linux soundcard driver development is slowly moving toward ALSA,
4Front's role in putting linux audio forward shouldn't be forgotten.
