Re: How play sound without alsa?

First you need a kernel with OSS drivers... Then any app supporting OSS can play it.

But why do you want to replace ALSA with OSS?

Alsa does OSS emulation, that's usually enough for any app that uses OSS audio output. If the output device is not OSS by default, it must be set in the application.

In my experience some applications have better sound quality with OSS (example: wine, some SDL stuff).

I want replace ALSA with OSS because, then program opening alsa divice play noise and then closing alsa divice play noise.
So what need change, that be OSS?
What need change in 'rc.conf'?

I'm not sure if the OSS modules come with arch stock kernel - if not, you will have to compile your own kernel...

But I think it's better to try fixing the ALSA issue instead of switching to OSS - I don't know how to fix it, but perhaps someone else does.

OSS has been deprecated for ages now and ALSA does much more than simply replacing OSS. in any case, even if you find a working kernel with OSS, it will soon be gone completely.
