Great app, but...
On 2008.12 I've installed python-pygame and this follows when I try to 
run the program:

root at om-gta02:~# export DISPLAY=:0
root at om-gta02:~# ko-lightsaber
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/ko-lightsaber", line 32, in <module>
pygame.error: No available audio device

Any tip?
