Description NHO 2024-04-03 13:48:20 UTC
This application has dead upstream for twenty years, with last update being made in 2005. It supports OSS and ALSA as audio backends.
It also depends on gtk+-2.24

We also has fmit and lignot for tuning musical instruments. With alive upstream.

There are two other repositories that package this program, one of them is collection of extra program for Fedora 38 and another has been not touched for 12 years.
Can we drop this piece of software archeology?

Reproducible: Always
