Sound Architecture) long ago. Two possible solutions are: to get support for audio output. ALSA is installed by default on many
Linux distributions.
a) Emulate /dev/dsp by PulseAudio: "padsp xcdroast".
b) Load the kernel module 'snd-pcm-oss': "sudo modprobe snd-pcm-oss".
c) Install the OSS Proxy Daemon (e.g. available on Ubuntu systems):
"sudo apt-get install osspd". Reboot to make this setting active.
A future version of X-CD-Roast will implement native ALSA support.
