    That's because OSS by itself doesn't support more than one channel
    at a
    time. You need to support virtual channels (a FreeBSD only feature
    AFAIK) by entering in the following lines in /etc/sysctl.conf:

    hw.snd.maxautovchans = 20 # Adjust to fit the number of simultaneous
    sound channels you want enabled at once.


I don't think that multiple sound channels are the problem. You see, in the port,

there is only one sound device I can choose, even though my headset outputs to

/dev/dsp and gets input from /dev/dsp1, so that I can only talk or hear, not both at

the same time. The linux build will not even let me call anyone or recieve calls,

not even the call testing service.

Please feel free to tell me any thing that you think might help.


Yes, it's most likely the problem if you can't play multiple audio sources at once.

Just please try my suggestion before saying it's not possible.
