    personally i prefer amarok, also is there any troubleshooting i could do to make my flash player have audio through OSS4?

    i followed the directions on post 1 with no luck.
    Refer to this guide:

    Thank you, your guide rocks!

    Previously, I'd get flash working, and then I'd lose my CD or DVD audio...I was just going in circles. Your guide is more thorough than others. I dunno, but maybe blacklisting ALSA made the difference.

    Anyways, thanks very much!

    If you've done the above and it still doesn't work after rebooting, download the attached file and compile it, I use the home directory (~/) as an example.

    For 32-bit/x86:
    Code:
    cd ~/; gunzip flashsupport.c.gz
    cc -shared -Wall -Werror -fPIC -O2 flashsupport.c -o libflashsupport.so
    sudo chown root libflashsupport.so
    sudo chmod 755 libflashsupport.so
    sudo mv libflashsupport.so /usr/lib/
    sudo ldconfig.real -vp | grep flash
    For 64-bit/x86_64, If you're using 32-bit Flash/nspluginwrapper, then execute the bolded commands and use the -m32 flag: If you're using the 64-bit Flash Alpha, do not execute the bolded commands and DO NOT use the -m32 flag.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -y install gcc-multilib
    cd ~/; gunzip flashsupport.c.gz
    cc -shared -Wall -Werror -fPIC -O2 -m32 flashsupport.c -o libflashsupport.so
    sudo chown root libflashsupport.so
    sudo chmod 755 libflashsupport.so
    sudo mv libflashsupport.so /usr/lib32/
    sudo mv libflashsupport.so /usr/lib/ # native 64-bit Flash Alpha only
    sudo ldconfig.real -vp | grep flash
    The last command should not output an error, but something like this:
    Code:
    	libflashsupport.so (libc6) => /usr/lib32/libflashsupport.so
    	libflashplayer.so.0 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libflashplayer.so.0
    Finally, you can remove the .c file if you wish:
    Code:
    rm flashsupport.c

    Re: Hardy 8.04 & OSS4 (Alternative to ALSA)

    I had problems with with my x-fi sound card and i followed temujin's guide to installing oss4 and i managed to get music playing (see a page or two ago in this thread).

    But i haven't used the ubuntu half of the computer for a week and now when i open Amarok i get the error

    "xine was unable to initialize any audio drivers".

    This was the problem before i fixed it, but i was trying many things and i can't remember what was the actual fix. I am 90% sure that i've deleted a file or done something to break it.

    Please can someone help with a link or an idea for how to fix this issue, even an idea might jog my memory and ill figure out what i did before.
    please please please help me

    Open Sound System is now free for personal and non-commercial use and comes with a license key that will allow you to run OSS. The license key is valid for up to 6 months at a time after which you will need to download and install OSS again
    I'd rather wait a year for ALSA to bring out a driver for my x-fi and use my onboard sound meanwhile than update to OSSv4 under such conditions.

    Just run ossupdate once after installing the .deb and OSS4 will get "activated" for free. Forever.

    EDIT: Temüjin, you might wanna add this to your guide. It is a very easy way to keep your OSS4 installation up-to-date, too.

    Hmh, I'm still kinda suspicious (it was originally releases as closed source, then that statement on the download page...). It is completely under GPL now, right?

    It's been under GPL for a year, now. And they added the BSD license by the end of last year, if I recall correctly.

    You might want to read this Wikipedia article and this Insane Coding blog essay about OSS which explains the OSS discrepancy a little. I personally like OSS a lot more than ALSA and now that it even introduced software mixing, there's no way I'm gonna go back.

    Re: Hardy 8.04 & OSS4 (Alternative to ALSA)

    hello

    I tried it, i got it working but i haven't got any surround with analog and the spdif wont work!!and the ossxmixer wont save the changes, giving me noise from the microphones every time that i restart. what i would like is to put alsa back again since oss4 support for spdif and surround isn't the best!!
    can anyone tell me how to reconfigure alsa back again??

    I'ven't got: sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound

    i done this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-oss oss-compat
          sudo apt-get install libesd-alsa0
    i remove all the blacklisted drivers on the end of: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist/

    and finally
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base
    what else should i do? i can't seem to get alsa running again:S

    please help



    EDIT: After trying to install alsa with a fresh kernel, and failing the only way to do it, was to remove my kernel and rebuild it again, and recompile all the alsa drivers, thanks anyway.
