I do have OSS installed (like Sun gives you a choice as far as audio
drivers go), and it doesn't.

I know there is a problem with 4front's devaudio emulation such that
it will return an EBUSY if you open the device for READ and then WRITE
(but it doesn't fail for WRITE, then READ) - they're too busy to fix
the problem.

actually, my main interest is to get the compressor(s) to work - don't care too
much currently to get the audio working (mainly due to the fact that the audio
drivers in solx86 is in such a sorry state).  I'll be interested once I get 
the current CVS to work again.
