    and I ran

    Code:

    And selected OSS, but oss still does not appear as an option in the GNOME sound menu.

    Re: Hardy 8.04 & OSS4 (Alternative to ALSA)

    Hi Guys,

    I have just tried this install for the Creative X-fi Xmod USB card.

    I installed the .deb package and that went fine, blacklisted all the alsa stuff as elsewhere in this thread, rebooted.

    The OSS installation worked for my internal sound card and osstest plays on that device, however it doesn't work on the USB X-Fi card.

    Has anyone else tried with this card, or is it just not supported. I know alsa doesn't support it in 8.04, yet it worked with alsa on 7.10.

    dmesg gives:

    Update

    solved the problem with system sounds not working on my X-fi. I had to install esound by doing

    sudo apt-get install esound libesd0

    and 

    sudo apt-get install esound-clients

    Then I logged out, and back in to restart gnome, and heard the ubuntu theme music. It still doesnt show OSS or esound in the gnome sound program, but at least it works. Hope this helps others

    ebike, I don't know if your USB X-fi card is supported. I suggest making a thread on the OpenSound forums.
    Other suggestions would include disabling your onboard audio in the BIOS if you're not using it (run soundoff, ossdetect -v, and soundon on the next boot if you do that) and configuring your audio program to resample to 48KHz (Creative/E-MU chips usually resample to 48KHz in hardware, but it appears the 44.1 KHz format is choking it.)
    If you don't see a resampling setting in your media player, try installing Audacious (available in Synaptic/Ubuntu repo) for test purposes. It has a resampling option.
    What would happen if your disk died right now?

    Purging a Failed OSS4 .deb Install, the Ubuntu Way
    (Based on http://www.4front-tech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2054, thanks to Dev Mazumdar)

    Code:
    cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
    sudo rm oss-linux*
    Now run the following command and press Ctrl+F or click on the Find icon. Enter oss-linux and it should bring you to a block of text that looks similar to the quote below. Remove that block, save, and quit.

    Thanks OpposingForce. It works for me too. (X-Fi, OSS4 and Hardy).

    Thanks for the advice, I will join that forum. I don't know about your logic on the 48k sampling rate. I get that error on the 44.1khz when the module is loaded (i.e when I plig the card into the USB), there are no programs trying to send data to the card at the time, I have disabled everything. The card hasn't really been recognized yet .....

    I've updated the guide. Please let me know if you have problems with the installation. If you get the package installed, but still don't hear sound, please post here: http://4front-tech.com/forum/index.php

    Question Re: Hardy 8.04 & OSS4 (Alternative to ALSA)

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...usb+microphone

    Would it be possible that this OSS4 would help me fix my problem getting a USB microphone to work? (issue linked to above)

    As it is the USB Audio Device is detected by system, it seems to even detect that there is a microphone on it. It plays sound to the headphones just fine, but it refuses to pick up sound from the microphone. I'm not at the machine now but I'm pretty sure that it is managed by ALSA at the moment. The USB mic is Gigaware, RadioShack's generic brand.

    Thanks.
