Unable to initialize audio mixer: No available audio device


When I run QTads, I get this message:

"Unable to initialize audio mixer: No available audio device"

I've installed libqt4-gui, libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-sound1.2, libqt4-network to meet the dependency requirements. I've tried the pre-made binary from the Web site (http://qtads.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml) as well as my own compiled from source (a binary which has proven to work on other machines also with Debian).

Sound works fine on the system. What can I do?

I found a solution: replace libsdl1.2debian-oss with libsdl1.2debian-alsa and it runs.
