I believe Commodore64 and its sound chip was/is important part of life of many of us.
Such musicians as Tim Follin, Jeroen Tel, Drax, Hein Holt and many others, they caused my love to this gorgeous little piece of silicon called SID Smile.
And I'm glad that finally I can also create/listen to SID music within my Puppy Linux.

I simply unpacked .deb package found here and created a .pet.
Everything seems to work fine with my Lupu-528.

FYI: example songs are included in usr/share/doc/goattracker/examples

GoatTracker 2.71 authors (taken from readme.txt.gz):

Hi 666philb

Thanx for the link.
I didn't know that Rob Hubbard was composing on other platforms too.
Spectrum 'AYs' are just charming Smile

Greetings!

Not sure if it will run on any x86 or just their hardware.
Anyway Commodore OS based on Mint released today . . .

Hi Lobster.

I just downloaded it and launched live session in VBox.
Seems to work fine! Smile
I wasn't able to run C64 emulator (UAE started, by the way) , but I'll install it soon, increase RAM and we'll see...

Thanx & Greetings!
