14.1 > Audio > oss (4.2.2010)

The Open Sound System is a set of sound drivers that serve as an alternative 
to the usual ALSA architecture.

Among the benefits are:
* volume levels being settable for each application individually
* better latency than ALSA in most cases

If your WM/DE supports tray icons, you will have one for the OSS mixer.

See README.SLACKWARE for post-installation instructions and setup information.
