I have the same experience. These things are unusually quiet.

Which is the same binary from Marcus' old site ftp.mayn.de


Thank you very much! It works perfectly. The "gr_top" say that the mpg123 uses between 71%-94% cpu but the sound is great.

The configuration is OK, I think. But I'm not able to compile the mpg123 for the IRIX 5.3 at the moment (and I am not able to find one which works on the R3k Indigo...).

I have been searching of one for a few years. There were 2 Freerunners at the same time on the eBay. So I have got the cheaper one (about $40).

Re: your latest purchase

Second-hand Openmoko Freerunner phone. I had one in the past but I have converted it to the gta04 phone http://gta04.org (but this one is broken now).

So I got another one to have something to play with.

In this case it's not tiny nor micro. Most of keys have standard sizes and positions. And the CapsLock can have a better use (one can use it as a Control/Ctrl key, for example) ;)

I think so. And the Indy is better than the O2 (I don't have the Indigo2 and my R3k Indigo cannot play mp3 files).

Re: Indy badges?

If I can offer a guess, they used the initial cover until supplies last ( thus gluing the extra badge on the improved units ), then moved to the new design I think so: I have 2 Indys, one is a R5k box and one initially had the R4500 CPU. Both cases are identical. The only difference is that the R4k...
