The version that was released in 0.2.1 is for alsa 0.5.x, and I've never
tried to compile it because I've never had that version of alsa. The
version in CVS is for alsa 0.9, and I try to keep it current with CVS
alsa. It should work with 0.9beta9 or whatever they're up to these days.

So, either get cvs gstreamer and one of the 0.9 alsa releases, or just
--disable-alsa and use oss emulation. Sorry it didn't work out for you.



ps alsa has been pretty stable, api-wise, lately, and gst cvs is more
fun ;-)
