first of all please tell which distro u r using.
If its rpm based, u need the package "libao". Its generally available on the distro cds.

Slackware 9.1 Packages generally come in the .tgz format, especially the official ones. This library can be downloaded from this FTP site:

But you can find it on your distro CDs under the /l folder.
