the patch and use OSS, set ALSA=no in the environment (probably only
useful if you use OSSv4).
+When using ALSA on a stock Slack 14.2 system, the audio will be routed
+to pulseaudio, but pulseaudio doesn't get automatically started by
+koules. This shouldn't be an issue for KDE or XFCE users (since they
+start a persistent pulseaudio daemon at startup), but if you run a window
+manager like WindowMaker or FVWM2, you might have to start pulseaudio
+manually (or, from your .xinitrc).
If you have Tcl/Tk installed, and you're running KDE, you'll get a nice
GUI launcher dialog when you run Koules from the K menu. If you're not
running KDE, try running "koules-launcher".
