Bug#626043: gpsk31: Add hint for loading snd_pcm_oss kernel module

Package: gpsk31
Version: 0.5-4
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

When the sound device /dev/dsp does not exists gpsk31 reports the following error message on stderr:

$ ls -la /dev/dsp
ls: cannot access /dev/dsp: No such file or directory
$ gpsk31 
init_audio: can't open /dev/dsp
Cannot initialize audio device: /dev/dsp -1
$ gpsk31 -v
gpsk31 version 0.5

This can be fixed when ALSA sound device exists with loading the snd_pcm_oss kernel module. The attached patch adds a hint to the user how to she/he can try to fix it herself/himself.

$ gpsk31
init_audio: can't open /dev/dsp
Hint: you might want to try to load snd_pcm_oss kernel module
Cannot initialize audio device: /dev/dsp -1
