Hi folks,

usually I have a alsa free environment (as it never worked well) and
used OSS4 for long time now (>20y).

Now with the switch to gentoo I wondering if it is possible to use oss
on gentoo too.

One of the first problems I see is:
   !!! The ebuild selected to satisfy "media-sound/pulseaudio" has unmet requirements.
   - media-sound/pulseaudio-11.1::gentoo USE="X asyncns caps glib ipv6 ssl udev webrtc-aec -alsa -alsa-plugin -bluetooth -dbus -doc -equalizer -gdbm -gnome -gtk -jack -libressl -libsamplerate -lirc -native-headset (-neon) -ofono-headset -orc (-oss) -qt4 -realtime (-selinux) -sox (-system-wide) -systemd -tcpd -test -zeroconf" ABI_X86="(64) -32 (-x32)"

     The following REQUIRED_USE flag constraints are unsatisfied:
       udev? ( any-of ( alsa oss ) )

Even that I have a explicite "oss" in my USE flags, it gets deselected
by pulsaudio (which I primary include to be able to use bluetooth
headset).

So,

- - What does that -oss in brackets mean?
- - How can I force usage of oss
- - Is there a oss4 patchset for kernel and the userspace available?

Regards
   Klaus
