Is it possible to Faking/Emulating drivers/cards?

 Hi!

 Is it possible to Faking/Emulating drivers/cards, so I can test my 
 GUI-mixer to see if the layout works well on other sound-devices/cards?

Non- *nix/posix port

Does anyone ever tried to port OSS to another platform?

Re: Non- *nix/posix port

That was a horrible typo. I meant, "Does anyone know if someone has ever tried to port OSS to another
(non-posix) platform?

I made a port to BeOS & Haiku,
cf.
http://revolf.free.fr/Alchimie-7/Alchimie7_OSS_Haiku.en.pdf
and
http://revolf.free.fr/FOSDEM/2010/FOSDEM2010_ALTOS_011_OSSv4_Haiku_Port.pdf

I've got a report_OSS_to_Minix_port.pdf here but can't find where I got it from, written by http://www.few.vu.nl/~hphijma/

and I recall hearing about a possibility for Syllable.

I tried to get the AROS people look at it, they already have a driver to use OSS for their Linux-hosted port.

Why not a FreeRunner ? :P

And please do not hijack threads by answering to mails with different subjects, this breaks MUA which
handle threads. Just start a new one.

Re: Non- *nix/posix port

Yeh, I was doing the Syllable port, but that was spare time work. A job opportunity has arisen that will give
me post-army employment & one of the subsystems that I'd like to bring to the table is OSS, for OS/2 - eComStation.

Interesting, maybe you could get around with the ReactOS people, I tried to get them interested too but they
didn't do much yet...

btw, I recall reading about a port of ALSA to OS/2, this was a fake right ? I don't see ALSA as portable at all.

Looks real: <http://svn.netlabs.org/uniaud/>.

Ah so it somehow works.
I'm wondering how much the spend on merging ALSA each time.
OTH it seems to talk about ACPI and suspend, one thing OSS lacks as of yet.

They're probably more interested in getting drivers already written for 
Windows to work correctly. I doubt they're interested in creating an 
alternate sound driver set.

> btw, I recall reading about a port of ALSA to OS/2, this was a fake right ? I don't see ALSA as portable at all.

No, this isn't fake. It's called UniAud.sys, it's their Universal Audio 
driver.

Sorry, when using Netscape email from the browser, it does that 
automatically & I've yet to find a way to make it post from the bottom 
correctly.

It's very real & it's been in use for quite awhile.
