OSS or ALSA, performance related.


I have 2 options to use for sound for game.

ALSA and OSS

Alsa and OSS both have 2 sub options:

Full Duplex and Use MMap.

Which Settings should I use for Best performance(not quality) For a Open GL game?

OSS is deprected in Linux, so most apps use ALSA. As to which provides best performance, I don't know. I use ALSA and it works fine on OpenGL games. I always change the sound settings to Full Duplex.
