Yes we are one and the same Open Sound System guys! :)

It doesn't matter if it's open sound or ALSA!. Lee, why don't you go down the
ALSA user mailing lists and count the number of 0-Compilation bug reports?

The same problems that affect ALSA (Fixed in CVS being the standard answer of
why a sound driver isn't working) affects 4Front's OSS as well.

If you're telling people to compile ALSA downloaded from CVS,
you'd ensure that before they start filing bug reports:

1) people had their kernel source installed
2) kernel sources were "configured" for the running kernel
3) compilers/build utils and other libs would
