Configuring Sound the Easy Way

Of course, there's an even easier way to configure OpenLinux for sound. Browse to, and download a copy of the Open Sound System, or OSS. You can find links to detailed technical procedures for manual sound configuration, or you can use the commercial version of OSS, which supports more than 200 sound cards (and which saves you a lot of time and effort).

OSS installs using a shell script. When you buy OSS online, you receive a license mes­sage by email. You can also use a 30-day demonstration version to try out the software. If you're having a hard time configuring sound on your system, give OSS a try!
