Testing packages with openal-soft
I hate to be an annoyance with these "openal-soft" emails, but here's yet
I've done my own tests of packages using the openal-soft library. Here's my
results so far.
First off, here's what I think is a better list of at least the source
packages that use openal.
>> grep-dctrl -FBuild-Depends,Build-Depends-Indep \
-s Package libopenal-dev -n /var/lib/apt/lists/*_Sources
For me (on i386), all these packages built and ran without a problem using the
antigravitaattori (source: antigrav)
xpilot-ng-client-sdl (source: xpilot-ng)
xpilot-ng-client-x11 (source: xpilot-ng)
flightgear (and dependency simgear)
supertux (experimental packages)
ogreal (only in games team svn)
Here are the packages that build but are giving me problems while running.
funguloids (crashes, though problem might be with ogre library)
boson (I've tried numerous settings, but I receive no sound)
Here's a package that required me to make a change for building, otherwise, it
chromium (disable use of alc[GS]etAudioChannel extensions)
Here's a package I built, but had no way to test directly
And here are the rest of the packages which I didn't test, most of them
however are libraries or bindings of some sort.
There it is. I really think the openal-soft library should be the new "openal"
library. I don't know if these could be release with Lenny however.
One more thing, I left the fix for chromium in a branch in the svn repo.
