Well the first compile I left out OSS altogether due to it being deprecated.
So I decided to recompile the same .config with the addition of OSS support
for the sblive and synth.
lsmod, in both cases, shows me all the sblive modules loading as expected ->
the alsa variants that is. The old OSS emu10k1 does not seem to be there. I
dont see why its needed actually.
But you mention OSS compat module. Giz a hint and tell me the name of said
module plz. ;--0
2 me its a perms issue.
