I can also confirm sound in FlightGear through OpenAL is working well (better
with arts support enabled rather than just alsa or oss emulation). Don't
quite understand why but it may be because I'm running under KDE.
I've finally got as far as I can with the ebuilds on Gentoo for SimGear and
FlightGear CVS - rather than posting the information again that I put on a
the gentoo forum (http://forums.gentoo.org) I present a link to the message:
I'd appreciate it if people would take a look at the ebuilds - even if you do
not run gentoo - to check if I've got the right dependancies and versions
A link to my ebuilds are at:
I've simply bumped the minor versions up and these ebuilds will replace any
current version of SimGear of FlightGear.
You'll need to extract them to /usr/local/portage or wherever and make sure
that /etc/make.conf has PORTDIR_OVERLAY set accordingly.
