Not a direct answer, but you may find what you are looking for with PortAudio. PortAudio is a free, open source, multi-platform audio API which can be targetted for Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix, BeOS and a few other platforms too, all with a generic API which is ( in my opinion ) a heck of a lot nicer than most platform specific audio API''s. The source is really cleanly written too, so if you have issues with using other peoples code you should be able to develop your own Unix/Linux audio libs from these.

Do not meddle in the affairs of moderators, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
