View Full Version : [ubuntu] OSS no sound help

July 9th, 2008, 01:37 AM
Im running ubuntu 8.04 I updated to OSS4 I wish to use just this. Anyways after a bit a fiddling around I got my logitech headset to be detected. But for some strange reason when I use anything that has sound I can't hear anything. This goes true for my sound card to where I have my speakers plugged in. I can run osstest and I hear sound come from both. I can also unmute the mic in the oss mixer and hear myself. I have searched the forums and found nothing about this. I also searched for a bit of info about the mixer but that didn't turn up anything either. I'm hoping this is easy and purely because im a noob at this. Please help :)

I am having the same problem, basically. Have you tried the STICKY POST on sound card problems?

I've looked at that besides being 2 years old it is only about alsa. Im looking for a solution in OSS4. A lot of the stuff i've found was when oss wasn't that great compared to alsa but obviously it has come a long way.
