Keep OSS until ALSA works with Audigy
by Steve on Wed 14th Apr 2004 10:15 UTC

All I get when using ALSA with my Audigy Platnum is just 2.1 channels sound. With OSS I have 5.1 channel. I checked the driver status for the Audigy cards on the ALSA project website and the latest info for Audigy states the it only works in 2.1 and that the back speakers do not work for some reason the the developers do not know. I use OSS as it is the only solution that just simply works.
