I want to run my programs which I was running in Fedora core 6 which uses alsa apis, In FC6 I had alsa headers in /usr/include/alsa folder. In Ubuntu 9.04, I search whole file system but cant find alsa headers like asoundlib, asoundef.h, input.h, output.h, etc.

Please tell me how can I get it?



sudo aptitude install libasound2-dev

Thanks, It worked but it installed headers in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11/include/sound not in /usr/include/alsa/. do you know the reason? – SunnyShah Nov 20 '09 at 8:53
probalby because this is kernel related anyway. – RageZ Nov 20 '09 at 8:54
Hi Ragez, Still I cant find asoundlib.h. – SunnyShah Nov 20 '09 at 9:02
if you install libclalsadrv-dev – RageZ Nov 20 '09 at 9:03
