Hello Colin and Daniel!

I just found the following Ubuntu PPA repo:


which includes the latest release of OpenAL. I installed it and now  
mplayer works fine. Yay!

Daniel: *Please* backport it to Lucid (lucid-updates or lucid-backport). I  
am sure it breaks on many systems.

Colin: If you can break the freeze, perhaps this is the moment. The latest  
release of OpenAL solves the problems I had.

Thank you all!

Best regards,
