Richard/Saul,
Hi Bruce, I'm a little late to the party, but was wondering what your
thoughts are on the whole OSS thing. It seems we should be as consistent
as possible in our various Yocto Linux kernel images. Do we want to
support OSS? I recall several years ago that OSS had drivers that Alsa
did not and was needed for some boards - is that still the case? My
feeling is, if possible, I'd like to just have alsa in our kernels and
help reduce the raging redundancy in the audio API space.
I'd wondered about this too. In general I'd suggest Yocto's position is
to push for alsa drivers and see OSS as a legacy thing. As the author of
chunks of ALSA SoC code, I've put that into practise myself too! :)

Cheers,

Richard
