I'm having problems recording audio using a relatively recent (20190724) build of the 64-bit VM on Linux (Debian 10) and was curious to see if this is a known issue or not. I've been running with the OSS drivers for a while now which have been running fine for audio playback at least (provided I wrap launching the vm with padsp.) However, I haven't needed to record audio since I started using the OSS drivers.
So recently I wanted to record audio (specifically using SoundPlugin primitiveSoundStartRecording/primitiveSoundRecordSamples/primitiveSoundStopRecording) and immediately ran into problems. The image becomes almost completely unresponsive (regardless of what priority level I run the audio recording process at) and at best I get back a few fragments of audio when I stop recording. No error messages in the console, errors in the image, etc. Just an unresponsive image and eventually an unusable recording.
I switched over to another OS / VM (OS X 10.11) with the same image and audio recording works just fine. OK, so the image isn't itself doesn't appear to be the problem, but rather some combination of my OS / VM / driver setup. My question is: should recording via OSS drivers be expected to work? If so, any suggestions on what I should be looking at?
Thinking that this might be considered an obsolete/unsupported configuration, I try changing my VM audio drivers which results in another issue in part 2...
 I started doing this due to Linux VM builds going a period of time without alternate (ALSA/PulseAudio) audio drivers included. Not sure if this has been resolved or not given my issue in part 2.
One correction: The configuration that worked was running on OS X 10.10 with the Squeak 5.1 VM. (the latest VMs don't appear to support this version of OS X)

I'm afraid I've never used the SoundPlugin, but it'd be great if you could file issues like this on our GitHub . This way they at least don't get lost in our inboxes. Plus, the mailing list will also be notified.
