Which SDK are you using? Are you sure the extension isn't supported?
(It won't necessarily show up in the header files, you have query for it
using alIsExtensionPresent() ).
If your OpenAL implementation doesn't support the extension, you have
little recourse other than using a different implementation (or you can
try implementing the extension yourself).
It's also possible that AL_EXT_FLOAT32 is just a notional extension.
That is, it might have been proposed as a good idea for future work, but
not yet implemented.
