Kubuntu Karmic on amd64 here (no Pulseaudio installed).Code:$ quantz alcOpenDevice failed
Edit: apparently the aoss is called alsa-oss in ubuntu's packages. The problem is, if it's CPUarch-specific, then the amd64 is of no use to me? Can't see the 386 version anywhere. Time for the plain-old download-deb-and-install routine, sigh.
