I mean adding a --with-sound=alsa to the PKGBUILD

Does that change mean that libao is no longer used and alsa will be the only supported backend? I don't think any OSS4-using people will like that change.
Comment by Greg (dolby) - Tuesday, 16 June 2009, 19:47 GMT
Yes, i guess it means exactly that. But no package in extra supports OSS anyway.
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Tuesday, 16 June 2009, 22:10 GMT
mplayer supports oss, gstreamer supports oss, libao supports oss, any app using libao supports oss. Though OSS is not the recommended backend since we have alsa, removing OSS support from packages completely means that OSS4 users won't have any sound output at all.

Yeah probably a bad idea to disable it. I will request closure myself.
