My cross platform game engine (with Haiku support) uses OpenAL for audio,
and when I last tested it on my old nForce2 motherboard, audio was working.
 In the mean time I've updated all my boxes to unsupported audio chipsets :)
so I cannot verify that OpenAL still works under Haiku, but I see no reason
why it shouldn't still work.   When the OSS 4.x issues are sorted out, I'll
have working audio in Haiku so I should be able to verify that OpenAL still
works.

Note to self - I should probably release my iPhone games for Haiku (see
http://www.zenyes.com), since I've actually got Haiku binaries lying around.
 However, with software based 3D rendering, the game play isn't as
compelling.  Eventually this problem will also be resolved ...
