the lib will have a 64 if csound was built for double (64 bits)
precision. Since the OLPC uses the float build it uses a different
file (this setup allows a system to have both floats and doubles
version of csound without conflicts).

The version of csound for the XO is a modified version which among
other things uses the alsa output module by default. The normal
version defaults to portaudio. You would need to check whether csound
is actually producing sound on your machine. You can use many of the
manual examples (e.g. oscil.csd), which are configured for realtime
audio. If csound is producing output tamtam should too. I tried it
some time ago on a debian machine, and it worked fine.

yes, the current version of OLPCsound is a cvs version a little later
than the official 5.08, but there should be no important changes.

Can you post the error?
