Hi Kai,

I tried specifying alsa support (I thought it was automatically enabled and you had to disable it? to remove support? )

by typing the --enable-alsa flag to config, but although it adds the support to config, it can't find the file, and make fails then, even though I have libasound2 installed (on my debian x86 workstation, and i have alsa working there ) --

 ls -al /usr/lib/*

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2006-07-06 14:49 /usr/lib/ ->

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 738588 2006-05-11 02:52 /usr/lib/


./configure --enable-alsa for ecasound 2.4.4, i get

checking for ncurses.h... yes

checking for main in -laudiofile... no

checking for main in -lsndfile... no

Following features were selected:

Debugging info: no

Effects enabled: yes

Largefile support: no

Termcap: ncurses

Libaudiofile: no

Libsndfile: no

ALSA support: yes

OSS support: yes

aRts support: no

JACK support: no

Otherwise ecasound will be built without support for ALSA. In practise you have to have the ALSA libraries (headers + libs) installed when compiling ecasound. Chech the summary of ecasound's configure script to see which features where enabled.-- links, my public keys, etc at
