Whas is better for ppc? ALSA, or OSS (or other alternatives). I've heard that ALSA is better, but that it dosen't realy work on some ppcs. Would alsa work on my g4 800 imac (w/ soundsticks). Or would I be better off with something else.


I also haven't realy found much help with this in the docs, so could someone point me to some good ppc alsa (or oss, or whatever) install instructions?

I would be interested in a professional opinion to this question, especially if anyone knows of docs for setting up alsa for ppc systems. As for me, I have OSS working and it works great but I can't say whether it's better or worse than alsa since I couldn't figure out how to do it. The Gentoo doc for alsa is helpful until it says "Enter the name of your sound card" but I don't know what to do there.

Anyone know if it's worth figuring out or is oss good enough?
