FWIW, I have successfully built audacity-1.2.1 on SuSE 8.2, but I haven't 
tested it yet. All I had to do was adjust some package (dependency) naming, 
since SuSE has different package names. While building, I did notice a 
message about it using portaudio 15 which restricts it to oss, and it said I 
would have to change to use the experimental (?) portaudio 16 to get alsa 
support. I have not done that yet. On my audio machine, I've got an M-Audio 
Audiophile-2496, and I think (?) I'm restricted to using oss (because of 
envy24control?) anyway? I'm a bit unclear on that. I'll play more later (on 
another machine). Just another "data point" for you guys.
