Ubuntu 11.04 Jack_oss driver and LynxTWO (oh yeah!)
I work out of a home studio voicing network promos, commercials, etc and for the last few years I've looked at Ardour but never went beyond that purely because my studio has ProTools hardware on one machine a LynxTWO card in the other. It's like the kiss of death for open source anything, and I've been a Linux junkie since I picked up my first copy of Yggdrasil back in 1993.
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 and noticed OpenSound and was pleasantly surprised to see all of the channels available for use and actively sending program content to both the internal and external mixer. However, Jack 1.9.7 doesn't seem to have a valid compilation option for jack_oss. Talk about timing.
Before I walk away from this, I wanted to confirm if OSS has been completely deprecated from Jack and if so, will an older version of Jack that does support OSS function with Ardour.
Thanks for any responses.
