ALSA is the *alternative*.
try checking this one:

http://www.opensound.com/

it's a commercial software (why do they call it opendsounds? <grin>) but you can download a trial version.

OSS come first, then ALSA come along and became the alternative, now its usually the standard

Is there a way I can beg the ALSA people to include the driver of my sound card in their work?

CMedia 9739A chip + Linux = total despair.

Cool

I also have the cmedia 9739A sound chip on my motherboard, and mandrake seems to use the i810_audio driver. The Ali5455 also seem to work most of the time.
