OSSPD(8) System Manager's Manual OSSPD(8)

NAME

osspd - OSS Proxy Daemon
 

SYNOPSIS

osspd [options]
 

DESCRIPTION

osspd implements the OSS devices (/dev/[a]dsp and /dev/mixer) in userland using CUSE. Sound data is forwarded to a DSP slave: Implementations for PulseAudio and ASLA exist, but the ALSA slave should still be considered experimental.
