Mp3 didn't play at all, it says "Module format not recognized"
I have package libmad0 installed.
Do this mean I can't play mp3-files with SDL?

I think ' libvorbisidec1 ' is the name of tremor based library on
moko. (installed)

Do this all mean that SDL_mixer is totally wrong way to play music in
games on Moko?
(This is still my first succes to play midi-files on moko)
