What I meant is whether gnome works with open sound system (OSS) the free
version; not the 4-front technology version.  Its called OSS/Free on some
web sites.  It is the sound system that comes with the kernel sources.  
The 4-front is a version you can pay for that works with many UNIXes and
sound cards.  I used that with my old sound card.

AFAICT gnome is more gearted towards working with the
Advance Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA).  I got my new
sound card working with OSS/Free so I thought I just use that. ALSA seems
to kind of infect the system like a virus (to me) so I don't want to use
it really.
