[Haskell-beginners] alut initialization

Hi. I'm trying to learn ALUT/OpenAL modules so I can have sound in my
app. I'm a bit confused by the alut module interface, because it uses
this alutRun function that is different than what is in the actual alut
library documentation. I thought I figured it out, but apparently not
because this simple program doesn't work:

import Sound.ALUT

main = do putStrLn $ "alutAPIVersion: " ++ alutAPIVersion
          runALUT "" [] (\x y -> return ())
          mimes <- get bufferMIMETypes
          mapM putStrLn mimes

*Main> main
alutAPIVersion: 1.1
*** Exception: user error (bufferMIMETypes: The operation was invalid in
the current ALUT state)

Is there anyone familiar with the module that can point me in the right
