Forgot about this one.  linking the lib to one of the directories used
by ldconfig did the trick for this problem.  

I also copied the eci.ini file from the /var/opt subdirectory to the
linux-outloud directory as per instructions.

Now to the next problem.

I was able to go back and read the thread concerning this error message: 

atcleci.cpp size_t alsa_configure Assertion `err >= 0' failed., returned
0 Items 

and think I understand a little about what was said in the thread.  I
would assume that things should work for these reasons:

1.  I am running the current cvs version.  It seems that the problem was
    fixed according to the thread.

2.  I am using a Thinkpad T40, In the top of the .asoundrc file there is
    a line reading:

# I82801DBICH4 [Intel 82801DB-ICH4] (IBM Thinkpads)

and the output from aplay -v has this line:

Hardware PCM card 0 'Intel 82801DB-ICH4' device 0 subdevice 0

therefore, based on this, it should work.

In reading the thread, I did not understand much more than this.  I
understand that this error comes up if there are bad settings in the
.asoundrc file, but I don't really want to go mucking about in the file
if I do not know what I should be changing.  

I ran the alsaparams program and got this back:

If there are parts of the alsa docs that outline what I need to change,
pointers are always welcome.  I read:


but it did not seem to help me to understand.

Thanks again for all the help,
