Hey all, I have been having issues getting soud to work on my iBook, so I have setup my kernel like so:

Code:

<*> Sound card support  //
<M>   PowerMac DMA sound support
         Advanced Linux Sound Architecture  --->
                   <M> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture                                         
                                       <M> Sequencer support                                                         
                                       < >   Sequencer dummy client                                                   
                                       <M> OSS Mixer API                                                               
                                       <M> OSS PCM (digital audio) API
         Open Sound System  --->
                                       <M> Open Sound System (DEPRECATED)


Now, after the last reboot I modprobed snd-powermac and snd-pcm-oss, yet xmms still doesn't have the OSS output plugin as an option. Am I possibly missing something? Or could somebody please help me by telling which alsa modules need to be loaded for alsa to work properly?

Good luck!

On my iBook I thought "to hell with OSS", and just compiled in ALSA support.
I am using kernel 2.6.11, KDE 3.4 with arts and ALSA without any problems.

I don't use any apps that need OSS emulation.

On the ibook make sure you unmute everything correctly in alsamixer... There are a couple of things in alsamixer that i did not have to unmute on my athlon xp box.
