using sbopkg to build and inst an audio queue fails in lapspa_sdk

hello everyone,
I created an audio queue in sbopkg.
the problem is with ladspa_sdk. after building some plugins it requests that I listen to some whitenoise and it halts there

from the sbopkg log file
../bin/analyseplugin ../plugins/

Plugin Name: "White Noise Source"
Plugin Label: "noise_white"
Plugin Unique ID: 1050
Maker: "Richard Furse (LADSPA example plugins)"
Copyright: "None"
Must Run Real-Time: No
Has activate() Function: No
Has deactivate() Function: No
Has run_adding() Function: Yes
Environment: Normal or Hard Real-Time
Ports: "Amplitude" input, control, 0 to ..., default 1, logarithmic
"Output" output, audio

../bin/applyplugin -s 1 \
../snd/noise.wav /tmp/test.wav \
../plugins/ lpf 500 \
../plugins/ lpf 500 \
../plugins/ sine_fcaa 6000 \
../plugins/ delay_5s 1 0.1 \
../plugins/ amp_mono 4 \

Peak output: 27349.5
First listen to the white noise input signal:
sndfile-play ../snd/noise.wav

Using the SBo repository for Slackware 13.37
Queue Process: Build and install
it stayed at that point the whole night
i pressed enter but nothing changed.
I had to ctrl+c the process..

obviously that is not optimal - there are about 40 more stuff that are waiting in queue

there seem to be no option to avoid listening to the streams while the build - install process is ongoing..

is there a solution?

Thank you for your help

EDIT: I should warn you, this slack machine is a vmguest and the real audio output is done through the virtualbox Intel Audio device...

It seems to identify it properly :
nass@starmass:~$ aplay -L
Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)

ok so the problem was simple (once again)

I hadn't initialised the sound on the vm.

alsaconf would usually identify the card and init it , but apparently it fails to do so sometimes.

alsactl init
should be run by hand.

then sndfile-play works correctly and the build can continue
