I uninstalled ALSA and installed OSS, and although it works fine there are a few problems :

  • Google Chrome v.23 (stable) - No sound in flash or html5.
  • Sound Volume Control - The default sound volume control does not work with OSS.
  • PulseAudio - PulseAudio does not use OSS as a backend, which means that all applications that by default use PulseAudio will not be able to output sound unless they can be configured to use OSS.
  • Steam - No audio output (including games).

Has anyone who has also installed OSS managed to resolve/workaround some of these problems ?
