This package needs access to /dev/dsp in order to run tests.

This means you need:

  • a Kernel with OSS compat Support
  • snd-pcm-oss loaded
  • Permissions to write to /dev/dsp (eg: chmod a+rw /dev/dsp or ensure portage is in the audio group)
  • FEATURES="-usersandbox"

However, test suite is still known to fail with all the above considered, and its not known to me if this is a limitation of OSS co-existing with other sound technology or not.

Results other than the following are wanted as feedback:
