Is Dave Taylor still the source keeper of LinuxQuake? The latest
DOS version of Quake now supports the GUS classic - it'd be a shame if
someone with this card had to run DOS in order to get sound.
How hard would it be to rewrite the sound routines so they do not require
mmap capability to DMA buffers?
