It's used just like in 2.4, same module names and all. No black magic
involved.Let me provide a bit more detail. I have machines with "Vortex
boomerang" sound cards. I have a 2.4 driver for same, for OSS, under
NDA. In 2.6 those cards appear to be supported in ALSA, but using the
OSS emulation everything seems to work except there isn't any sound.
I've had several people tell me that they are using OSS/2.6 without the
ALSA utilities. I just want to know if that's possible or not, the
people with the machines don't want ALSA for reasons I would call
pigheaded stupidity if they weren't paying me to say "personal
In any case, that's the question, can I get there from here? I can't use
just OSS, the Vortex drivers are in ALSA.
