Thanks, Fernando.  Just for your information, though, this version does
not include ALSA support (i.e. the only two options in the menu are OSS
and Jack).  I took a look at the SRPM, and the problem seems to be that
the --enable-alsa switch to configure is read as --disable-alsa (i.e.
putting either --enable-alsa or --disable-alsa both disable alsa), and
the only way to get it in is to leave off the switch entirely.  So, with
only --enable-jack, it tries to do OSS, ALSA and Jack.

The next problem is that once it tries to compile in ALSA support, it
hits a number of warnings and stops due to the -Werror switch.  I see
that your perl commands try to remove these switches from all configure*
and makefile* files, but it seems to only succeed in taking them out of
the makefile.in.  They remain in configure.  The solution seems to be to
remove the leading space and adding a trailing one instead:

find ./ -name configure\* -exec perl -p -i -e "s/ -Werror//g" {} \;


find ./ -name configure\* -exec perl -p -i -e "s/-Werror //g" {} \;

After this, it compiles fine with ALSA support (albeit with numerous
warnings).  But, selecting ALSA as the audio output now causes a seg
fault. :-(

Anyways, hope this info is helpful in your ongoing efforts!

Thanks again,
