Can support for oss4 be added to kdemultimedia-kmix? Whenever I have kmix installed in KDE, I get volume bars for alsa, but no options for KDE. OSS4 works fine in GNOME and XFCE4.
This task depends upon

Does it require phonon-xine? I tried some options, don't remember if I tried phonon-xine as backend. Will try for 4.5. Happily using XFCE for now, but will try kde on 4.5 release. Thought this was an option that had to be compiled in.

Just as a follow up, I'm using latest KDE 4.4.5 and tried all the backends. Doesn't seem to work with OSS. Only ALSA.

I'm sorry but this is not working for me yet. I don't know if I have it configured wrong... I have tried all 3 backends (mplayer, xine and gstreamer) and have restarted my PC each time. Using OSS package from extra and kernel26. Can you guys tell me how to get this working?

you are right. seems that OSS must be installed when you build kdemultimedia to enable OSS support.
I closed this because I read  bug 20693 , but that user is using ossmix.
