Skype, Ekiga, and OSS

Postby Oko » Wed Aug 15, 2007 7:09 am

I was wondering if anybody is using Skype or Ekiga (other SIP phone) via the Open Sound System compiled from ports.

Could you share your devfs.conf and rc.conf files.

Does OSS driver even support "full duplex" - that is, if it can both play and record sound at the same time for Audigy SE sound card by Creative?

Just as a follow up on my earlier problems with Skype. I was rebuilding my userland over the weekend due to the XOrg 7.3 update. By accident I updated also OSS port.
My skype now works flawlessly. I found out on this forum that there was a mixer bug for the AudigySE card (I thought something was wrong with my oss mixer of course since the built in oss ROCKS but I am not using it)
Fantastic job guys!
