Hi all...

(Assumptions:- You know how to open up a terminal and run as root.)

If any of you are like me and write directly to HW devices it looks as
though many distros are now dropping the OSS......

adsp
audio
dsp

......audio related devices. :(

Be aware...

Debian 6.0.0 has done so and Lubuntu 10.10 also. :-\

PCLinuxOS 2010.12 still has them however. :)

I wanted to run "xoscope" a dual channel sound card real time
AC coupled Oscilloscope which needed the "dsp" device and
needless to say Debian doesn`t have it anymore. :-\

To check if you have them just open a terminal and type......

ls /dev<RETURN/ENTER>

......and look.

If they are not there then you probably need OSS compatibility.

Just install from the repository......

oss-compat

......OR......

sudo apt-get install oss-compat<RETURN/ENTER>

......from "root" in a terminal.


EDIT:-
This is at the date of writing 19-02-2011, AND, for Debian 6.0.0.
Checked Lubuntu 10.10 repository and oss-compat DOES exist.

Or if your linux distro uses Pulseaudio you could try to run a program which depends on /dev/dsp like so ...

padsp name_of_program_which_needs_dsp

For example the game open_invaders requires /dev/dsp so i run the program like this

padsp open-invaders
