oss will not start after a kernel upgrade

Postby 3dfx » Wed Apr 06, 2011 12:51 am

so after a kernel upgrade I cant get oss to start
I tried to reinstall it, but on go
I'm on sabayon Linux

here is a terminal output
Code: Select all
sabayon tux # soundon
Failed to disable conflicting sound drivers
Reboot and try running soundon again

Also check that you have not compiled sound support statically
into the kernel.
sabayon tux #  /etc/init.d/oss start
Starting Open Sound System: Failed to disable conflicting sound drivers
Reboot and try running soundon again

Also check that you have not compiled sound support statically
into the kernel.
Starting OSS failed
sabayon tux #

Check if the ALSA drivers statically compiled into the kernel. Also, please paste output of 'lsmod' here.

If you simply reinstall OSS, it should not help.
1. remove OSS
2. remove /usr/lib/oss/
3. install OSS

The test the 'soundon' script uses is 'if test -d /proc/asound || grep -q '^ *14 ' < /proc/devices'. So I find it odd this is true if these don't exist...

You can edit /usr/sbin/soundon and comment out (by inserting '#' at start of line) lines 137-149 (i.e. starting from the if test... line) and see if it loads.
