How to have /dev/dsp reappear in CentOS7

Post by CaViCcHi » 2019/02/15 00:01:18

hi guys,

I know /dev/dsp is being removed but I remember it working a few versions back in 7, and I need to make it work.

as of now the mention is still inside alsa-plugins-oss in its share files

for example.
# pcm-oss plugin configuration

pcm.oss {
type oss
device /dev/dsp
hint {
description "Open Sound System"
}
}
so how do I get the plugin to work?

Alsa-plugins-oss is for emulating alsa on top of oss.

'man padsp' perhaps?

Just for completion,

I solved my issue by using alsa devices instead, turning my

Code: Select all

sox -t  ossdsp /dev/sdp
to simply

Code: Select all

sox -t alsa hw:0
(or whichever id your device has according to `aplay`)

way easier than making something deprecated work half-way
