|Post subject:||oss won't use Nvidia nForce2 sound|
I have an A7N8X deluxe with an onboard Nvidia nForce2 sound. ALSA doesn't work with the board under R6 (it worked fine under R5.5 though??) while playing back PVR-250 files. It does work with avi and mkv files via mplayer. Anyway, my solution under R6 has been to use OSS which I tried, but it doesn't work
I first tried from the service menu, but the I couldn't see debug info from there so I went to the shell and tested it.
# ossdetect -v
Detected Nvidia nForce2
USB support available in the system, adding USB driver
Detected Generic USB audio/MIDI device (BETA)
Looks like it's there, but when I go to use it:
Sound subsystem and version: OSS 4.1 (b 1051/200902180218) (0x00040100)
Platform: Linux/i686 2.6.28-LinHES #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug 17 05:38:57 UTC 2009
NOTICE! You don't have any audio devices available.
It looks like your audio hardware was not recognized
by OSS. Please contact 4Front technologies for help
(http://www.opensound.com/support.cgi). Don't forget to
include your soundon.log file to the support request.

I ended-up getting frustrated with this, shut it off and tried again. Upon rebooting, everything worked! I can't explain it. I always thought that the only time Linux needs a reboot was on a kernel update.
