Re: tee-like function via virtual_oss

no chance so far, just to be sure I got you right:

   1. /dev/dsp0.9 created when basename_clone = 1
   2. virtual oss started with

-T /dev/sndstat -C 2 -c 2 -r 48000 -b 24 -s 8.0ms -R /dev/null *-P
/dev/dsp0 -d dsp0.9* -M x,0,0,0,0,0 -M x,1,1,0,0,0 -t dsp.ctl -i 10 -S

Still nothing when capturing.

Environment: trying to grab audio from Firefox under KDE.

Firefox is compiled with PULSEAUDIO on.

When I enable virtual_oss and then start KDE there are no devices and the
mixer does not work, so I cannot set the default playback device nor assign
another playback device to Firefox when it outputs audio. It relays on
hw.snd.default_unit (which happens to be set to 0).

Furthermore when virtual_oss is started other apps behave inconsistently:
vlc only shows the virtual_oss device in the list of output devices, all
the other are gone, but audacity correctly shows the other rec devices as
well as virtual_oss.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.
