I've got OSS sound installed through the binaries from the oss site.
Every time I startup, I get a message something like
intializing /dev/mixer: (settings)not available
Then, I login as root,
type soundoff (forgot why, ) soundon, then it loads the OSS driver again, and
I can play sound.
if I open the Volume Control thing in Multimedia menu under gnome,
"Sorry, no mixer device or elements found"
if I try to record from my line in, nothing happens
I have one of those RIPtide sound cards
