Milkytracker doesn't use Alsa directly for audio, all audio output is handled by SDL.  SDL supports a multitude of driver standards, on several different platforms;  Therefore Milkytracker also supports multiple drivers on multiple platofrms.  The disadvantage of this is that it's not possible to use device-specific features from within Milkytracker as Milkytracker can only use what features SDL provides.

I did a quick google search and found this - perhaps you have the same problem, check if you have the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL environment variable set.

I was about to write a command line for this, but then I remembered that Winamp has a disk writer plugin (maybe XMPlay does too) which will convert a playlist into a bunch of WAV files, which you can then use 'lame *.wav' to convert to MP3..

On Linux using Audacious, it takes 2-3 seconds for each file to be converted, then about 5-10 seconds per file to convert to MP3 (all of which can be done in the background).

Regarding the silence at the end of the tracks (not that I've noticed this when using Audacious for playback), I've just done a quick google and found plenty tools that do this automatically.  You could combine this with the MP3 encoding step.

So.. cheap pocket-sized MP3 player plus a little work and you can listen to mods on the move.  The alternative is to buy something bigger and more expensive (and battery hungry), and fiddle around getting a mod/xm/it/s3m/sid/whatever player to work - which won't sound as good as converting them on the PC.

I normally copy only the music I wish to listen to onto my MP3 player, not my entire collection - so 1gig of MP3s is ample listening material.  Also, the quality of the conversions done on a PC can be of much higher quality (one of the players I have emulates the hardware of the Amiga and uses the original playback code to playback mods and other more exotic Amiga formats).

and converting all my mods to mp3 would take faaaaar to much time

Well.. It's possible to convert my entire collection using one command line, taking all of 30 seconds to write ;)

Just get a cheap MP3 player (they're all cheap nowadays) and convert your MODs/SIDs/XMs/whatever to MP3 format.  You'll save yourself a whole bunch of hassle.

If you already own a WinCE/PocketPC or PSP then get Milkyplay and nag pailes to add mp3/ogg support ;)

It was me.  I was testing out my imaginary admin powers.
