Hi hi hi,
I've dabbled with Linux before and am about to do so again. Before I
do, though, I want to make sure I have everything in order.
So while I was reading up on various things, I found out that there
are several different sound drivers. It seems to me that I can choose
to use ALSA, OSS, or OpenAL(?) which Creative has developed a driver
My question is, which would be best? I'm not a gamer and I have a
stand-alone DVD player so the most sound I'll need is playing MP3s.
Which one of these has the lowest CPU overhead? Will any of them be
incompatible with some or all programs?
It's all so confusing ;-) Thanks for your help. Could you send a
reply to my email address too? I don't read this ng too often.
