I am one of the contributors to Wavesurfer and I am writing on behalf of 
one of the main developers (Jonas Beskow, in cc).

Since Ubuntu 10.10, support for OSS has been discontinued [1]. 
Consequently, wavesurfer (which depends on libsnack2) does not work 
anymore. There is a package called libsnack2-alsa that may solve the 
problem, but, according to apt-get dependencies, wavesurfer and 
libsnack2-alsa are incompatible. Whould it be possible to make the 
package wavesurfer dependent alternatively on libsnack2 or libsnack2-alsa?

Thank you,
best regards.
