I've tried alsa with pd-37 on 2 separate machines and 3 different
soundcards.   On each of them, alsa is working and I can play sound with
apps such as xmms or aplay.   However, with pd-37, alsa doesn't work at

sb audigy:  alsa doesn't work, hangs pd.  oss over alsa works on an sb
audigy. jack also works.

RME hammerfall:  alsa doesn't work, hangs pd.  oss over alsa hangs pd.
jack works fine.

ess 1968: alsa deosn't work, hangs pd.  oss over alsa doesn't work, hangs
pd. jack doesn't work (because of jackd problems with this card).

before, alsa was working fine with all of them.  I also get a number of
alsa compile problems with pd-37. 

best -august.
