ALSA is a piece of sh*t... (XMMS & ALSA)

Why the switch? OSS worked so much better with mostly all things... Heres the problem... the soundcard module loads fine, despite hotplug trying to load snd-emu10k1 instead of just emu10k1.... I can play sound through my TV Tuner fine on the line in, but xmms wont work... In the ALSA config for xmms is only gives the onboard sound card twice and no emu10k1 like before for some reason. Any ideas how to fix this? There is an override thing for user defined.... default is in the textbox not sure what else to put in there.

EDIT: I'd actually like to get rid of the onboard sound from loading and get rid of the insmod errors at boot for the Sound Blaster Live! card...

EDIT #2: blacklist for hotplug took care of the other sound card not loading... but what about the ALSA stuff?

mmm, well I opened the computer, put in the tv tuner card, thats obvious. Booted up slackware 9.1, it autodetected it, (the card is a ATI TV Tuner VE using the bttv module) I loaded up the TVTime SOftware and set a parameter in /etc/modules.conf to set the tuner module to type=2 for some reason. I forget where I found that, but when I boot back to slack I will post it.. *damn need for speed underground and it's addictiveness*

Alsa can be compiled with oss compatibility ./configure --with-oss=yes

From ~/.xmmx/config

Look in /usr/lib/xmms/Output
