The generic kernel of maverick seems to be completely without any oss:

me@maverick-host:~$ grep OSS '/boot/config-2.6.35-15-generic':
..
..
# CONFIG_SOUND_OSS_CORE is not set
# CONFIG_SND_MIXER_OSS is not set
# CONFIG_SND_PCM_OSS is not set
# CONFIG_SND_SEQUENCER_OSS is not set

In Lucid OSS was at least available as a module:

me@lucid-host:~$ grep OSS /boot/config-2.6.32-24-generic:
..
..
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS_CORE=y
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS_CORE_PRECLAIM=y
CONFIG_SND_OSSEMUL=y
CONFIG_SND_MIXER_OSS=m
CONFIG_SND_PCM_OSS=m
CONFIG_SND_PCM_OSS_PLUGINS=y
CONFIG_SND_SEQUENCER_OSS=y
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS=m

But If there is no oss at all, why are there still the 'oss-compat' package etc..?
A lot of software stil needs oss as sound interface!
