Re: [BUG] Frequent distortion in sound output

Hmm.. are you sure you disabled vmix before this? You can check this in 'ossinfo -v2' printout... $ grep -i vmix_disabled /usr/lib/oss/conf/osscore.conf vmix_disabled=1 $ ossinfo -v2 Output can be found in the attachment. Only one application can output sound at once but seems the 'Related mixer de...

Re: [BUG] Frequent distortion in sound output

Code: Select all

$ vmixctl attach -r -M /dev/oss/oss_sblive0/pcm0
VMIXCTL_ATTACH: Input/output error

The device referenced exists and is not a symlink.
*Sigh*

Re: [BUG] Frequent distortion in sound output

The /dev/dsp message is because something is using the card. You can check this via "fuser /dev/dsp". Kill it, and try vmixctl again. Already checked. The device node is not open by any program and no program has oss libraries loaded. $ fuser /dev/dsp $ fuser /dev/dsp_in $ lsof -n | grep ...

Re: [BUG] Frequent distortion in sound output

Hmm... You can try attaching it manually (disable it and then 'sudo vmixctl attach -M /dev/dsp /dev/dsp_in') and see if that helps. VMIX disabled in osscore.conf. vmixctl with the parameters you gave outputs "/dev/dsp: Device or resource busy" And idea: rebuild OSS from source, providing ...

Re: [BUG] Frequent distortion in sound output

What happens if you disable vmix? ('vmix_disabled=1' in /usr/lib/oss/osscore.conf, or maybe just set vmix0-enable to OFF in the mixer). Disabling the vmix in the config file makes the distortion go away, but audio can only be played in one application at a time after that change. Oddly, disabling t...
