Depends on 2 packages(full list with versions):

OpenAL is a minimalistic sound API that aims to provide bare features for spacialized audio. The API looks like the OpenGL one, thus the libs are pretty great together. Up to now, no OpenAL extension is supported. You're highly invited to contribute ;). EAX is not supported yet either. It'll be embedded in future releases, soon. In order to build and install "al", you'll need to have pkg-config installed. For Ubuntu users, there might be a bug with pkg-config. If the install fails, consider using cabal install al your OpenAL setup is located to – you can help find that with find / -name al.h@.
