Re: brltty FTBFS on hurd-i386 because of lack of sound support

Hi there, long time.

Well, as far as I saw in include/mach (I am writing without having
sources, but should be somewhere in the public headers), we have a
mach-exported sound interface. All we 'd need is to let the hurd and
its application support that. We might even write a null sound device
for testing.

Then all we need is linkage to linux sound drivers to that interface.
Shouldn't be that hard.

What do you think?


It was a type of people I did not know, I found them very strange and
they did not inspire confidence at all. Later I learned that I had been
introduced to electronic engineers.
