    [SOLVED] Re: missing /dev/dsp* after upgrade to 10.10

    Cool. That takes care of 1/2 the problem. However, Pulse won't provide me an option to choose my S/PDIF device integrated on my Nforce4 board as my playback device. It'll do stereo, or analog 5.1,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Sound frustration with games and flash

    Actually, you can leave the OSS (deprecated) stuff disabled. Don't confuse OSS with ALSA OSS Emulation. They're two separate beasts. When you make menuconfig, enable the following within Device...

    [SOLVED] Re: missing /dev/dsp* after upgrade to 10.10

    Blacklisting didn't work. The streamzap module loads anyway, in spite of blacklisting. Recompiling the kernel without its built-in streamzap support, however, does work. Kernel .config attached...

    [SOLVED] Re: missing /dev/dsp* after upgrade to 10.10

    Nope. ALSA OSS emulation is required for /dev/dsp but is disabled in the kernel. But I wonder whether the new kernels with ALSA OSS emulation turned off are going to filter down to Lucid anyway. ...

    [SOLVED] Re: missing /dev/dsp* after upgrade to 10.10

    Yep. Been there. It seems they're relabeling it as a feature, though. No moar /dev/dsp evar. It's the end of an era. So long, OSS. Ye shall be sorely missed.
