Sorry, but the section about multimedia keys is not clear at all. What should I do with those scripts? Qeek 14:04, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

Also of note: installing OSSv4 disables the kernel modules for sound that ALSA uses. Can someone detail how this happens and how to restore the modules after removing OSS and installing ALSA? I had to reinstall the kernel to get the modules back, so if that is the case, let's add a section for removing OSS and going back to ALSA.bloodniece

  • I don't think it does bloodniece, must be related to some other problem. There would be no reason to do.--Gen2ly 15:39, 22 June 2009 (EDT)
  • The OSS .install defines an uninstall procedure that automatically runs when the package is uninstalled. Including re-placing any ALSA modules. Perhaps you could state that OSS conflicts with ALSA and that if you need to run ALSA later that the OSS package must be removed? --Maskawanian 02:05, 18 July 2009 (EDT)

Maskawanians' re-organized page can be found here. --Gen2ly

Sorry if I've missed something, but I don't think you add oss to the modules array, just the daemon array. Is this right? --Tim

Yes, it does... fixed. --Gen2ly 11:51, 13 December 2009 (EST)


The last two links in "7.6 A simple systray applet" are down. Can somebody reup it anywhere?
