Dear Vincent,

I have been rpmbuilding the sources on my FC3 system with the latest
standard kernel-2.6.12-1.1381_FC3, which like all previous Fedora 2.6.x
kernels has no support for OSS.

My rpm system is: 

My installed alsa rpms are:

I run a few 'non-rpmed' binary packages like Java, LimeWire, a
homebanking solution and some games, but nothing that IMHO could in such
a way interfere with the sound system.

Correction to my prev posting:
When the binary wine-0.9 package is installed, I can choose "ALSA" or
"OSS" in winecfg as sound setting and have sound.
With the compiled version only "OSS" gives me sound.

For either version:
When choosing "Automatic" to auto-detect the sound system, both come up
with "OSS" though it is definitvely not installed.
Hitting "Configure" does not work too. I get the message that it "could
not open wineoss.drv or winealsa.drv", though that may not be
implemented yet.
