Distribution with OOS installed by default


Hello. Please tell me what distribution come with this sound system on iso package ? Not matter if the version is old. I dont want Alsa and Pulse because of energy consumption on my laptop.

Welcome to LQ!

There is the Arch netinstall. With it, you can choose whatever packages you want (requires internet connection). OSS is in the official repositories so you can choose to install it.

Arch, however, requires some work to install and customize. If you'd be willing to wait until after the initial install to get OSS, then you have more options. For example, Debian has some OSS packages.

It would seem that FreeBSD comes with some form of OSS:

Hold on, are we confusing Open Sound System and Open Source Software?

Based on that, I think he means Open Sound System.
