Any ideas on what I need to update to get capture to work on Fedora? It seems alsa-base package name is used in apt-get.....:S

It is likely looking for the 32-bit version of just the regular ALSA stuff. This link came from Codeweavers. It may help. It shows the package names across a few distros, yours included (taking into account dnf, so it has to be pretty up to date):

Hi!

Thanks for the quick reply.

I tried to install the alsa packages mentioned in the link and it added the pulseaudio plugin. After which I tried the capture module again and still got the same fatal error:(

Do people generally use this module or should I be using a 3rd party application? 

Any other ideas? Your assistance is much appreciated.

ALSA talks to your sound hardware at a low level, PulseAudio is a audio server. The way that Wine works is when a Windows app tries to make a call to say, your sound card, it makes a call to a kind of "fake" audio dll, which passes the audio data on to a native linux library or set of libraries, like ALSA. Since most applications that run through Wine, and therefor POL, are 32-bit (64 bit support is still hit and miss right now), when you are on a 64-bit OS, the 32-bit libraries will be needed (like libpng, libmpg123, etc.). 

Why it is still giving the same error; I have no clue. Usually, you should post your full debug logs in the first post, too. That helps a great deal. Do you think you could pastebin the debug logs here (check the wiki for info on that), please?

I wonder if that is just a glitch in that plugin. I have personally never used it, but I don't see anything that indicates anything specific.
