If you are programming a game and planning to sell it on Steam, you might want to consider irrKlang
as audio library: I just uploaded irrKlang 1.4.0b, which includes some Linux improvements. Some developers of games which are using irrklang had a preview-build of this, and it appears to be working fine even for those who are being sold as Linux version on Steam
You can get irrKlang here
. Happy programming!
