Bug Description


As reported in http://askubuntu.com/questions/361711/osspd-aoss-padsp-dont-work-with-13-10
I found that osspd doesn't work with Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy.

I'm sure it is Ubuntu 13.10's problem because I also have Ubuntu 13.04 on this very same machine, and it works fine. Here is my Ubuntu 13.04's info:

$ uname -rsm
Linux 3.8.0-19-generic x86_64

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 3.8.0-19-generic (buildd@allspice) (gcc version 4.7.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) ) #30-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 1 16:35:23 UTC 2013

And here is my Ubuntu 13.10's info:

$ uname -rsm
Linux 3.11.0-13-generic x86_64

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 3.11.0-13-generic (buildd@roseapple) (gcc version 4.8.1 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.8.1-10ubuntu8) ) #20-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 23 07:38:26 UTC 2013

Here is how I tested:

$ ls -l /dev/dsp
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 14, 3 2013-12-22 18:39 /dev/dsp

$ stat /dev/dsp

$ echo 0z0z > /dev/dsp
bash: /dev/dsp: Input/output error

Restarting osspd won't work:

$ sudo service osspd restart
 * Restarting OSS Proxy Daemon osspd [ OK ]

Rebooting my machine won't work either.

My *PaulsAudio works fine*.

Didn't test padsp or aoss because I'm not sure if they work with my Ubuntu 13.04, and it is already reported not working.
