Hi all,

I installed audiolab via

git clone git://github.com/cournape/audiolab.git
python setup.py install --prefix=$HOME/local

How can I fix the backend problem wrt. alsa ?

python -i test_sndfile.py
UserWarning: Could not import alsa backend; most probably, 
you did not have alsa headers when building audiolab
   warnings.warn("Could not import alsa backend; most 
probably, "
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "test_sndfile.py", line 332, in <module>
NameError: name 'NumpyTest' is not defined

AFAIK, NumpyTest is obsolete. Am I missing something ?
