Distribution: Slackware 10.2, Debian Testing/Unstable, Ubuntu Breezy Badger, working on LFS
No problem! First I got ALSA and aoss working. Next, I made my ~/.asoundrc like this:
ipc_key 1024 # must be unique!
# ipc_key_add_uid false # let multiple users share
# ipc_perm 0666 # IPC permissions for multi-user sharing (octal, default 0600)
pcm "hw:0,0" # you cannot use a "plug" device here, darn.
period_size 1024 # must be power of 2
buffer_size 8192 # dito. It
#periods 128 # dito.
#rate 8000 # with rate 8000 you *will* hear,
# if ossmix is used
# bindings are cool. This says, that only the first
# two channels are to be used by dmix, which is
# enough for (most) oss apps and also lets
# multichannel chios work much faster:
0 0 # from 0 => to 0
1 1 # from 1 => to 1
slave.pcm "ossmix" # use our new PCM here
# mixer0 like above
# You may want to make your new ossmix the default for alsa.
# If your alsa programs are complaining that they can't open
# your sound devices, try uncommenting this next line
Uncomment that last line if ALSA sound won't work. Audacity won't work with it, though, so I have to leave it out. I also moved firefox to firefox.app and put a shell script under firefox to run "aoss firefox". Same with Audacity and a few other apps. I found this page helpful. Hope it works!
