If you look back about 2 weeks or so in the archives, there was a decent
sized thread resulting from me trying to get ALSA to work without OSS
emulation. According to everything I've read, ALSA alone SHOULD work.
But, sadly, it doesn't. If ANYONE has gotten sound to work through ALSA
WITHOUT OSS support, I'd be very interested to hear about it.
