Talk:Open Sound System
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)
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)
Ok, I went through most of the page and hopefully didn't miss anything big (and didn't mess anything up). But I don't really use OSS (and the OSS forum and wiki seem to be down) so I have a few questions:
- if anyone is using the : does using the unit file work like that? (theoretically it should)
- in the Tips and tricks section: are the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 SB1090 USB and ALSA emulation sections still relevant (especially the Sound Blaster one, seems out of date). In any case, they're badly worded and I didn't understand what they do.
- same for the Settings for a specific driver. It was written in first person and didn't really detail the actual problem. From what I can tell OSS didn't recognize the headphones being plugged in, but it should definitely be made clearer.
