Package: oss4-base
Version: 4.2-build2002-3
Severity: normal

This is a major problem for people like me who use a laptop.

do it if one of you guys explained to me what you are changing from the initial

The question is : do you plan to solve the problem ? If not, I will use the
4front package, which provides all the files needed (but don't fit into debian
