Thanks so much for the new release! :)
Unfortunately my new sound card does not work with OSS :/
Neither with ALSA...

It's a PowerColor DEVIL HDX with the new high-end C-Media CM8888 chip. Any chances it could get OSS support?
Check out my effort on revamping the opensound website => github.com/Nuc1eoN/4Front-Tech-Website
Any feedback greatly appreciated =)

Thanks for the update! :)

Quick question, has the 32-bit (x86) Linux TAR version been uploaded yet?
The link doesn't work for me:

Sorry for the newb question. I've had my wonderful lynxone in storage since the death of kmixer with vista. I saw this announcement and figured would be the perfect time to rebuild my music machine to use the lynxone again.

I've now spent 12+ hours trying to get this pkg to work on FreeBSD 11 with no success yet. I have the lynxone driver sources and they build... I can see other audio devices on the system but no lynxone, hard hang if I soundon...

So... I'm not tied to any particular distro, I'm a newb that's looking to output some music. Would it be possible to point to some proven instructions for any distro to get oss 4.2 working with a sound card? Today I'm afraid I am following fragmented instructions that are both new and old.

I'm really excited by the potential but surprised how difficult it is to get a sound package to work.

Thanks!

I maintain oss AUR (Arch User Repository) packages for Arch Linux which should 'just work' using the standard instructions for installing AUR packages:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/oss/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/oss-git/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/oss-nonfree/
