|After updating alsa-driver I no longer could get alsa-oss to work automatically, however much I changed in the config files. I ended up writing a small boot script, it might help some other people. It assumes the default devfsd.conf variables, ie users have to belong to audio group to be able to listen to anything
Here is the script:
ebegin "Loading alsa-oss modules"
chown -R root.audio /dev/sound
chmod -R 770 /dev/sound
ebegin "Unloading alsa-oss modules"
Save as /etc/init.d/alsa-oss and add to boot run level.
This is very much a hack, but it works well enough for me. I thought someone might find it useful.
