Now the /usr/lib/qt-version/include notation is what makes it so
difficult. Currently ecawave's (and qtecasound + ecamegapedal) search the
/usr/lib/qt/include /usr/local/qt/include /usr/include/qt
/usr/include/qt2 /usr/include /usr/X11R6/include/X11/qt
/usr/lib/qt/lib /usr/local/qt/lib /usr/lib/qt /usr/lib/qt2
/usr/X11R6/lib /usr/lib $x_libraries
Otherwise it also checks the directories give to 'configure' with..
And in addition, it also checks the QTDIR env.variable. Now all this, and
it fsck still doesn't work with all distros! :(

Arrgghh! :) The proper way would have been to
1) ./configure --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt-2.3.0
2) export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt-2.3.0 ; ./configure
.. these should both work, even on Redhat 7.x boxes.

You can specify those on the command line, ie. "ecamegapedal alsa,sb_name
alsa,some_other_card". The syntax is the same as in other parts of
ecasound. Here I uses the ALSA 0.9.x notation, but the old "alsahw,0,0",
or even "alsa,0,0" (ALSA 0.5.x) still works.
The meters should start only after you hit 'start' (equivalent to 'start'
on ecasound's interactive mode).
