I know it's very easy to leave it at the default; I just want to be able to
excise OSS emulation mode completely so I don't need alsa-oss or my oss USE
flag any more (to get myself ready for 2.6 and cruft removal) - obviously,
if I did that at the moment, I'd get no mixer controls. The only apps this
machine ever uses are Myth, Xine and mPlayer, all of which are compiled
with native ALSA.
Can I just chuck alsamixer in there or what?
