I am trying to get aMSN 0.97.2 sound working with OSS4, but without success.
If I go to to 'Preferences -> Others -> Audio and Video' settings and try to play the test sound, I get the error message:
An error occurred when trying to play the sound. Could not open default for write.
It's a similar message when I try to do a test recording.
I have tried changing the Sound Server from 'play $sound' to 'aplay $sound'.
aMSN installs libsnack-alsa and it appears that I need libsnack2 installed instead for using OSS. Uninstalling libsnack-alsa also uninstalls aMSN. Reinstalling aMSN also reinstalls libsnack-alsa. If I have installed libsnack2, it is automatically uninstalled!
Please, can anyone help?
EDIT. I forgot to mention that I am using LinuxMint7
