Angry ALSA and OSS emulation


Hi there,
I compiled kernel-2.6.10 enabling ALSA and OSS emulation, and support for my VIA AC`97 sound card of couse:

<M> Sound card support
<M> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
<M> Sequencer support
<M> OSS Mixer API
<M> OSS PCM (digital audio) API[*] OSS Sequencer API
<M> RTC Timer support
PCI Devices ->
<M> VIA 82C686A/B, 8233/8235 AC97 Controller

When I reboot, all OSS modules starts correctly:

$ lsmod | grep oss
snd_pcm_oss 48804 0
snd_mixer_oss 17792 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 82952 4 snd_pcm_oss,snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec
snd 45668 18 snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm,snd_timer,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,s nd_seq_device

but /dev/*dsp* and /dev/mixer aren`t created. When i try to listen music for exemple using xmms or mplayer using OSS, doesn't work. What happens? I forget to compile or to do something?

Any suggestion greatly appreciated

Why not just use alsa on xmms and mlayer, they work fine on my Slack system using alsa. OSS is obviously deprecated so it won't be around for long.

The easy fix is to compile soundcore as built-in

You could compile all your sound features as built-in or just compile Sound card support as
built-in and nothing else, then go to alsa-project.org, download and compile alsa-driver
