Indeed fusd-kor (which is used by oss2jack) is not very useful
anymore. I believe all major distributions are dropping OSS support at
all, and the jack ALSA plugin combined with the snd-oss module can do
job. Luckily there are very few OSS-only applications these days, mainly
legacy non-free ones I'd say.
So all in all, I agree we should request its removal from Debian, and
I'll do it shortly if nobody objects or wants to take over its
Thanks for bringing this up. Ciao!
