Package: wine64-development
Version: 2.0-3
Severity: grave

The newest package does not work anymore with OSS sound system. That
renders Wine nearly unusable as the only think where I need wine is to
play WoW.

OSS is the only sound system working. (Currently oss4 4.2-build2010-5)

I think it's time for a new test.  E.g. the sound stuttering was fixed
long ago, and in the meanwhile this fix itself has been superseded by
the new winepulse implementation.

I strongly suggest to use alsa via pulse.  Exactly the same was stated
recently on the winehq devel mailinglist.

2.0-2 (which just dropped the build-dependency on oss) already broke it
for you.  Right?

Quoting its buildlog

  configure: OSS sound system found but too old (OSSv4 needed), OSS
won't be supported.

The reason for this has already been stated by Simon.

2.0-3 just prevents accidentally picking it up during compilation
(configure --without-oss).  Unrelated for you (amd64), it also readds
oss for kfreebsd.  I don't see a regression for you here.

I'm badly informed about oss, alsa and pulse.  Pulse just works
perfectly for me (in the rare cases that I use sound).
I'm not opposed to oss, but if there are general severe maintenance
issues with it I agree to drop support for this.

Therefore closing this bug "wontfix".  If I missed something please tell me.
