sounds in text mode


I am currently using Suse 92 that loads KDE
if i change the /etc/inittab to load in text mode only, is there a way to get any sound played in the text mode. A .wav file. An mp3?

I believe you can add the play command for wav files to your /etc/rc.local file to do this. For mp3 there is mpg123 or xmms command line several others also. If not there then creating one should still work. If you want something when you login then I believe it can be added to ~/.bashrc file.
