SDL install woes


Firstly i didnt know where this would fit in but since im a a newbie style answer is what i need. Im trying to install Never Winter Nights, linux version. I Downloaded and installed all the files but when i tried to ./nwn i get the following error

root@box:/home/knoppix/nwn# ./nwn
Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)
root@box:/home/knoppix/nwn#

Googleing led me to the SDL website and installing SDL(go figure :-P)

./configure goes off without a hitch but when i get to make i get the following error, i haven't been able to google up a solution to this one, any help would be greatly appreiciated

looks to me like an alsa error.
are you sure that youve got alsa installed correctly, and configured right?

Well, if you're not using ALSA as your sound system (lsmod as root; most alsa modules start with "snd-"), you can try to figure out how to pass an option to ./configure to disable alsa support. (I think it's ./configure --enable-alsa=no)

Otherwise, if you are using ALSA, um... You could see if the SDL page has some kind of forum or mailing list - they could probably help out a lot better with compile errors.
