First of all, greetings from ladmeet03! I had lots of fun there and had
many interesting discussions with other lad people. I'm certain that this
event will have a very positive effect on linux audio, and especially
getting developers to cooperate even more than now. Links to the material
from the event:
Ok, now on to the actual issue...

How about "ecasound -i:foo.wav -o:/dev/dsp" (i.e. ALSA's OSS emulation)?
Or "ecasound -i:foo.wav -o:alsahw,0,0"?

That means ecanormalize was unable to create the temporary directory in
/tmp for processing. Try "USER=myaccount ecanormalize foo.wav", where
myaccount is the username you are logged in with. Or if that doesn't work,
try a different tmpdir: "TMPDIR=/home/myaccount/tmp ecanormalize foo.wav".
