    Post HOWTO: Sound Fixes

    Requirements
    1. Check on soundcards.txt to make sure your soundcard is supported
    2. Make sure your sound card is working
    3. Your Ubuntu version must be 9.10 or greater
    4. You must have good knowledge of the Terminal

    Pre-Installation Instructions
    Removing ALSA and PulseAudio
    Open up a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) window.
    Type inside it:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio
    sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop
    sudo apt-get remove alsa-base alsa-utils
    Be sure that it does not want to remove gdm, but don't worry if it wants to remove ubuntu-desktop.
    Making sure ALSA is not being depended on
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base
    A message will pop up, just press <ENTER>.
    Then it will ask you what is the default sound output.
    Use the Up/Down arrow keys to navigate.
    Select OSS, then press <TAB> to select OK, then press <ENTER>.
    Making ALSA applications work with OSS (Optional)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugins
    echo "
     pcm.!default
     {
       type oss
       device /dev/dsp
     }
     mixer.!default
     {
       type oss
       device /dev/dsp
     }" > ~/.asoundrc
    Installing Necessary Packages
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -y binutils libgtk2.0-0 sed gcc libc6
    sudo apt-get install -y build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r` gawk libtool libgtk2.0-dev
    sudo apt-get install -y libesd0 libsdl1.2debian-oss
    sudo apt-get install -y esound esound-clients esound-common libesd0
    sudo apt-get install -y arts
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dtl131/ppa
    sudo apt-get install -y gnome-applets gnome-media gnome-settings-daemon libcanberra
    Installing OSS
    Restart your computer
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -y mercurial
    cd /opt
    sudo hg clone http://opensound.hg.sourceforge.net:8000/hgroot/opensound/opensound oss-devel
    cd ~/
    sudo rm -rf oss42build
    mkdir oss42build
    cd oss42build/
    NO_WARNING_CHECKS=yes /opt/oss-devel/configure --enable-libsalsa=NO
    make
    sudo make install
    Updating OSS
    Code:
    cd /opt/oss-devel
    sudo hg pull
    sudo hg update
    cd ~/
    sudo rm -rf oss42build
    mkdir oss42build
    NO_WARNING_CHECKS=yes /opt/oss-devel/configure --enable-libsalsa=NO
    make
    sudo make install

    A complete guide is located on: http://www.4front-tech.com/wiki/inde...ions_for_OSSv4
    What's Next?
    Reboot, then type:
    Code:
    osstest
    If you hear some music, your sound has been fixed!
    Troubleshooting
    If you do have any problems, and/or "osstest" does not work, please reply and add the output of these commands:
    Code:
    ossmix
    ossinfo -v3
    I would be glad to help you!
