Yes, smurf (included in AGNULA/DeMuDi - version 0.52.6-6) seems to be
functional but no audition is possible without a wavetable card (I
guess, I don't have one). Swami should be the new name of the same
project and if I understand correctly it can use fluidsynth for audition,
and they are equivalent to vienna. Unfortunately, swami isn't included
in debian... I've build a quick deb with checkinstall, if you want to


It's ~ 602 Kb - I've taken 0.9.2 because an advice on the swami page
says that 1.0 versions are not guaranteed to work.

I think we should definately ask Free to package this :-)
