Configuring ALSA OSS

Configuration Information

As with most libraries, there is no configuration to do, save that the library directory i.e., /opt/lib or /usr/local/lib should appear in /etc/ so that ldd can find the shared libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run while logged in as root.


The ALSA OSS package contains aoss and the libaoss (ALSA OSS compatibility library) library.
