    Yup, same here. Interestingly though, the package no longer depends on lib32v4l like the version from medibuntu did.

      I paid for Nero Linux 3 few years ago, and it's the only burning software I can trust to do the work.
      Brasero is joke that not working, K3B is not always working.
      It is not a shame to pay for something that does the work. I had a choice and i used it. No regrets.
      You'll probably waste more money on f...d blank CD/DVD if you don't use Nero.
      But anyway, you have the right to use whatever you choose and as long as you don't bash other people choices no one really cares about your choice.

        OSSv4 comes with an ALSA compatiblity layer. Use that.

          Yeah I see you're giving real facts here.

          It's idiot to pay for something you can have for free.

          Not a single blank disk as long as I remember. And this is a fact not a personal opinion. So the bucks I would have given for Nero would be practically a waste.

          But anyway, you have the right to use whatever you choose and as long as you don't bash other people choices no one really cares about your choice.
          As I have the right to use whatever I want, is my right as well to judge if someone else should do this as long as I don't forbid him to choose whatever he wants as well.

            The distro I use (Arch Linux) has libsalsa disabled in the package and if I try to compile OSSv4 with --enable-libsalsa=YES it aborts with "unknown option --enable-libsalsa=YES".

            I guess I'll have to look into it better, but anyway, there is no good reason not to support ossv4 directly, the 2.0 version of skype did have direct support for oss and that works perfectly here.

              I'd check ./configure --help|less and try to find if there's anything related to ALSA.

                There is and it's exactly that, the files are all there it's just that configure accepts --enable-libsalsa=NO just fine but not --enable-libsalsa=YES.

                Later I'll try to manually compile it instead of using a modified pkgbuild. But even if I can compile it, it doesn't mean it will work. It was not made to be a perfect alsa emulation/translation layer after all.

                  Guys, just point libasound to use OSS. It works a lot better than either systems' emulation.
