Aye. I have to agree that the Linux community using sound has to thank
Hannu and everyone else who have spent time fighting the hardware
oddities.

My small contribution: I'm currently running OSS/Free 3.8s9 &
2.0.34pre13. There is a little bug with Awe32 support in this
OSS/Free release, which the following diff to
/usr/src/linux/drivers/sound/lowlevel/awe_wave.c fixes. I've been
running with this fix since 2.0.33 with a non-pnp Awe32 with 8Mb
without any trouble.
