New audio support in Linux

Hi all.

I have just downloaded and compiled Linux 2.6.11.7 . Tried on my AthlonXP 1600. Optimized for my athlon and using cfq scheduling and enabled preemptible option. Well I use my PC mostly as desktop. Generally it runs faster than shipped kernel from distro.

Actually the first thing impressed me was the audio driver. It seems to mix automatically several sound sources without setting any options at all. For example: when I listen music from XMMS, I can also hear sound from my movie player Mplayer.

Well actually you have to setup your linux to use ALSA driver instead of OSS.

Have fun and try!
