Open System Sounds : Installing and Configuring

Filed under: Tools — Tags: , — shijitht @ 10:01 pm

* install oss from the file obtained from its site

* osstest will test available sound devises in the system.

* /use/lib/oss/ -> a useful folder containing configuration mixer.oss etc.

* oss will add the detected devices in /dev/oss

* when we have configured the device, passed osstest and still having the problem we can configure the softwares(vlc etc).

* we need to select oss instead of alsa or whatever for the audio functioning of the software and this will demand an audio device path.As stated above the device will be in /dev/oss most likely by the name pcm0.

* ossxmix will allow us to adjust volume properties graphically

* ossdetect -v will show the detected devices

* soundon and soundoff could be used to load and unload oss.

* /etc/init.d/oss {start | stop | restart} could be used to manage oss service

* remove /usr/lib/oss/starting if insisted

* vmix is virtual mixing. This will allow us to adjust the volume of each application separate. Vlc would be added to vmix when the above conf done.
