thanks for the compile fix, it builds fine now with pulseaudio support :)
Unfortunately there're some runtime problems with this SDL driver:
1) setting the envvar PULSE_SERVER to forward the stream to another
box results in 'E: proplist.c: Assertion 'p' failed at
pulse/proplist.c:295, function pa_proplist_contains(). Aborting.'
(thats from the SDL app using pulseaudio). paplay works just fine.
2) inefficency, using not used envvars like PASERVER, etc
I fixed 1) with
static char *get_progname(void)
char *progname = NULL;
+#if defined(__LINUX__) || defined (__FreeBSD__)
static char temp[BUFSIZ];
This obviously doesn't work for other platforms, but at least its fine
on freebsd for me. Streaming to a Linux pulseaudio server works now :)
for 2) see http://bugzilla.libsdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=698
I applied 2) (without the additional compatibility path, can't test
that and there's at least an #include missing) and combined it with my
oneliner change. Attached you'll find the results, ready to throw at
