Correction: "With Debian-based Linux distributions, you can etc etc" -
aptitude is Debian's package manager, it's not something you'll find
on other Linuxes. And the exact packages available depend on your
repositories; again, most Debian-derived Linux distros will most
likely have ogg123, but it's not guaranteed. However, it's reasonably
likely that other package managers and repositories will have what
you're looking for.
